Hi,
Thanks for posting in HCM.
I understand your concern.
Burning sensation in the scrotum is generally due to inflammation of skin and underlying tissues. Hence, just applying oils superficially might not be fully beneficial.
It would be advisable for you to apply antifungal cram with steroid like Clotrimazole with Betamethazone to overcome this problem.
Take Tablet.Levocetirizine once a day to overcome itching sensation.
Take care to avoid friction in the area and wearing moist undergarments, as these could exaggerate the symptoms.
Maintain good personal hygiene.
Hope the information provided would be helpful.
All the best.
