What causes severe itching and redness in and around scrotum area?
there is no sign of a rash except a redness from my scratching. I have put on different anti-itch lotions with minor relief . It is usually worst in the evening when i go to bed. What could it be and how can I treat it?
Answer few questions
Thanks for being at Healthcaremagic
I have gone through your complaints and it seems to be pruritus.
Do you have any other ailments as it can sometimes be associated with diabetes?
Are you taking any medicines?
Do you get excessive sweating in the affected areas?
Do you have history of dry skin, hay fever, asthma?
Kindly revert with the answers.
These are the meds that I take daily: aspirin 81 MG, Celecoxib 200 MG, irbesartan 75 MG,metoprolol 25 MG, and Magnesium 400MG.
Waiting for further answers, thank you.
Cortisone cream and antihistaminic
According to your complaints it seems to be pruritus most likely related to dryness and age.
I would recommend you to apply cortisone cream on the affected areas twice daily and take antihistaminic like tablet Chlorpheniramine maleate 4 mg once or twice daily depending on the intensity of itching.
This should subside your problem.
