welcome to hcm..
the reason for the itching may be a fungal infection..u may need some topical anti fungal drugs and steroids...u may need to undergo tests to rule out diabetes as diabetes is also one of the causes for constant itching..
consult a dermatologist at the earliest..
However for instant relief u could apply tenovate-GM cream.
take care.

My testicles (ball sack) itch all the time. I put jock itch cream on them and the itching goes away but comes back in a few hours. I have done this a little over two weeks and it still occurs. I have no burning during urination and no discharge of the penis. I few days ago some skin was flaking off in the areas that itch.

Hi Dr. About 6 months ago, I noticed a white, sticky, fluffy discharge from my anus when I go to the toilet in the morning. The discharge is usually attached to my stool and the amount varies. It is not painful at all. I visited my local Health 4 Men clinic. I was treated for STI’s with an antibiotic. I was also treated for a possible anal fissure with suppositories. However, the discharge is still present in my stool. Lately, my anus is often itchy and the past week the tissue around the anus was tender and red. I treated it with an anti-fungal cream and it has now cleared up. For the past 2 weeks, I have been experiencing some slight abdominal pain (just below the left rib cage). This said, I was wondering whether I don’t perhaps have a Candida infection?

My hair has been falling out for the last 5 months quite rapidly, there is no male pattern boldness in my family. My doctor thought it was a fungal infection and have been using anti-fungal shampoo for 6 weeks now, the hair loss has slowed but I'm still losing 20-40 hairs a day. I only wash my hair twice a week and use shampoo high in zinc.

I'm also on tetralysal tablets for acne treatment, my acne has pretty much cleared up now but was wondering if this medication could cause hair loss? or whether a change in my hormones meaning no more acne could be the problem?

There are no bald patches it's jsut generally thin all over, I am having a bllod test on Monday to se if i'm low on zinc in the blood.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks
