Looks like infection, please provide pictures

Detailed Answer:
Hi

I understand your concern regarding your skin problem and I hope I am able to help you in the same.
Now from the description, it looks like either you have developed genital scabies or a candidal infection .
I would like to know certain more details from you .
Since when do you have this problem?
Is the itching all over the body and is more at night?
Do you have any raised round lesions over the scrotum as well?
Any whitish discharge over penile region?
If there are any lesions over the skin, please click some close up pictures of the skin condition and upload them here on this page .
Also tell if you are currently taking or applying any medicines?

I am sure I will be able to help you more once you provide me the above details and the pictures .

Brief Answer:
Treatment of scabies

Detailed Answer:
Hi again

You seem to have developed scabies infection . You need to apply five percent permite cream all over the body below the neck at night. Apply the entire cream at night and finish it off. Take bath in the morning. Wash the bedsheet and clothes separately in warm water.
Take tablet ivermectin 12 mg stat single dose. you should take it after confirming the diagnosis by your local doctor.
Take tablet levocetrizine 5 mg at night daily for seven days. This is for itching.

I am sure this treatment will help in clearing the infection completely .
