I have itching outside of my testicle pouch and it is unbearable

For almost a year now I feel like something is moving around in my testicle pouch under the skin and it causes me to scratch and rub the area hard until I draw blood under the skin. Is it possible I have a parasite in my testicle pouch?

Hello, I am 48 and since several years and I have a small mycosis stains on both sides of my testicles, namely, where the inner part of the thighs and the testicles touch. The stains are abt 3x3cm large on both sides. Sometimes they get larger, at lest I feel so. Sometimes they itch unbearably and sometimes I dont feel anything for days. Is there some natural remedy or do I have to consult dermatologist and get some chemical medicine? Thank you.

Hi Dr. Dilip Raja,

I am a 23 year old, sexually active male. I have had a history of fungal infections (jock itch, infected toes, etc) all over my body. About 3 months ago I started having severe pain on the tip of my penis that worsened after urination, ejaculation and chaffing. I was tested for all STDs at 2 months and 4 months after possible exposure and everything came up negative. I was put on 2 months worth of antibiotics which did nothing to improve my condition. Recently the pain at the tip has gone away but there is now a small line (indentation) along the base of the head of the penis which is the source of the discomfort. It is greatly affecting my sex life. I hope you can help.

hello doctor, i have jock itch. i have had it once, but then, it was easy to cure with an oinment (zincoderm gm). i had been wihtout it for a year after that. But, it came back again, and i ve been affected for like 7 months now. it seems it became more resistant to oinments and its spreading.. i have tried using zincoderm and quadriderm cream, but they just seem to stop the growth of the fungus. They didnt kill them... and also the infection now is a little painful around the border of the infected area. should i use oral treatment. if, yes, how long would that be and what oinment should i use..
