Thanks for your query. Based on the fact that you have posted it appears to be a sebaceous cyst.The scrotal skin has large number of sebaceous glands compared to rest of the body hence it this site is more prone to get sebaceous cyst . normally it occurs due accumulation of sebaceous material due to blockage of the sebaceous duct.Since it has become red and tender indicating infection it need s to be treated with antibiotics and anti inflammatory drugs like Diclophenac twice daily.If does not subside you have to get it excised in Toto by a surgeon.
