Brief Answer:
It is normal.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Let me assure you that the purpose of the scrotal sac is to keep the temperature of its contents (the testicles) lower than the rest of the body. The scrotum does that through sweating and therefore this perspiration is to be considered normal. You can try using a T-bandage or a scrotal support and see if it helps. Also feel free to use Candid (Clotrimazole) Dusting Powder topically.

Hope I have answered your query.

Thank you.
