What could be the cause of bad funky odor coming from testicles?
User rating for this question
For the last two weeks I have been noticing a bad "funky" odour coming from beneath my testicles. No amount of washing makes a difference. Sometimes I will notice myself sweating in this area and then there is the bad smell like old cheese. What could be the cause of this?

Brief Answer: Fungal infection of the groin Detailed Answer: Hi, I understand your concern regarding your skin problem and I hope I am able to help you in the same. Now you seem to have developed a superficial fungal infection. Such infections are very common in the region that you have described due to increased sweating in the area. These tend to cause a whitish discharge sometimes and lead to continuous wetting of the region and can further cause a bad odour. You need to apply a topical antifungal like clotrimazole cream over the affected area twice a day. Do not apply any other creams or oils over the affected area. Wash with lukewarm saline water twice a day and then apply the medicine. Wear cotton undergarments in order to decrease sweating in the area. Hope it helps. If you have any other queries, please ask.
