Brief Answer: get ultrasound done Detailed Answer: Hello Prostatitis will not present with sticky scrotum. It presents with frequent urination and hesitancy in passing urine. There is a possibility that your urinary bladder has developed a chronic infection along with yeast infection of scrotum. Please get an ultrasound of lower abdomen and a culture and sensitivity test of urine. This will help in finding out the cause. Appropriate treatment can be started based on the tests. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you
