Thanks for posting your query.

You reported a dull burning pain localized to the area between anus and scrotum. The dull burning pain may be related to:
1. Localized fungal infection
2. Small nerve fibre inflammation

Small nerve fibre inflammation may be secondary to blood sugar, doctor, I would suggest you use topical antifungal creams like candid along with vitamin b12 supplements. If your blood sugar has not been tested recently, it is time to get it tested. Besides those, prefer to use lose and clean clothing/undergarments.

I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need clarifications.

Best Regards

Thank you.. I did notice it began after some work I did which required me to sit on my work boots for some time. in like a kneeling position with my backside resting on my boots.... I also drive a truck for a living and yes tight work pants are going in the bin.. there is no bruising that I can see but I guess a slight bruised pain may describe it a little better. Any thoughts

Thanks for providing additional details.

Tight work paints, prolonged truck driving and the abnormal sitting position can explain the bruise and the mild burning pain. As there is a slight bruise, I suggest you to keep the area clean and dry and use loose fitting pants to work. The bruise and the pain should improve with these changes.

If it does not improve in the next 3 days or if it worsens during these 3 days, you may use the antifungal cream and vitamin B12 supplements.

That being said, considering you are 43 years now, I insist that you check your blood sugars if you haven’t tested it recently.

Wish you good health!! I will be glad to answer your other concerns (if any). If there are no other questions to me, please close this discussion.

Take care...
