Brief Answer:Fungal infection
Welcome again and thanks for posting important details with pictures.
After analyzing the pictures and correlating with your query it appears that you are suffering from fungal infection with mixed "intertrigo"( infection of the folds) at genital area.
Additionally you appear to be suffering form Urticaria or hives as a generalized itching over rest of the body.
To tell you about fungal infection and intertrigo first: Fungal infections are common type of infections which can affect anybody at any site. But more commonly it affects the areas which are more prone for moist areas (as in your case). More specifically these are related to the hygiene and environmental factors along with certain systemic complaints as in hormonal problem such as diabetes
Due to moistness it leads to growth of fungus at moist testicle area. By repeated touching or by scratching the area it leads to more irritation and infection by other bacteria leading to Intertrigo.
For the betterment kindly follow the suggestion below:
- Wash your genital area with mild soap.
- If it is causing irritation then can do cold compression according to the weather condition.
- Keep your self away from hot and humid climate.
- Take two times bath.
- Wear cotton clothes and cotton undergarments to be changed two times a day. Do not wear any synthetic or tight garments.
- Do not sit continuously for long hours.
-Don't try to scratch or rub the area as can lead to further aggravation of the problem.
For the treatment part -
In my patients I suggest them to apply latest anti-fungal creams such as "Sertaconazole" or "Amorolfine
" and take anti-fungal tablets according to medical advise.
I also suggest to take oral anti histamine
or levocetrizine two times a day under medial advise if there is moderate to severe itching
I also suggest to go for your blood sugar check up as per your age factor.
Now for the other part of the problem which appears to be "urticaria": To tell you Medically - Our blood contains multiple type cells including red blood cells and white blood cells.
Specifically these white blood cells provide immunity to our body which are of further multiple types. Whenever anything in body is not suitable or offending to body then the number of white blood cells increases transiently.
Particularly these cells which increase are eosinophils and basophils which are also known as mast cells. These cells contain granules which have a specific chemical known as histamine. So as soon as any offending factors come in contact there is bursting of the mast cells. There fore this histamine is released and we experience variable degree of itching and the kind of bumps or itching which we can see in yourself.
Now the type of offending factor are innumerable including our food, environmental factors including temperature variation, heat, humidity, cold, dust and even simple of fragrances in air and multiple of other related things and very importantly stress too.
For the treatment part - it is quite simple and treated with drugs which inhibits the histamine release also known as Antihistamines. I myself prefer Loratadine (Alaspan or Lorfast) in my patients as it is very simple medicine without any side effects of sedation.
In my patients I start with 2-3 tablets/day, as soon as good effect is maintained then reduce to one to two in few weeks and then alternate days in next few weeks. Once there are no lesions/bumps for few weeks then taper off to 2-3 tablets per week for few months and then stop it.
In general urticaria may remain for few months to upto a year period but sometimes it may progress even longer than that too. In most of the cases as our immune system and body get adjusted to that particular offending factor so it then self subsides.
I hope these information will help you. If you have further queries I will be happy to help.
"Wish you good health and early recovery from the problem"
