Applying hydrocortizone and miconozale ointment 3 times a day from very soon after first noticing symptoms. Now scrotum is scaley. Redness only very slightly better. Itchniness is better.

Gastroenterologist, Surgical 's  Response
Scrotal infections usually manifest in a very trivial form but may assume dangerous proportions. From your description it is clear that you have acquired some infection. Stop steroid creams immediately. Instead of self medicating , I would suggest you to consult a Genearl Surgeon for specialist advice and treatment.
