Is rash-like itching around the scrotum and the surrounding area a symptom of chlamydia?

Is rash-like itching around the scrotum and the surrounding area a symptom of chlamydia? I was told I have chlamydia, and yesterday I went to get my treatment medication for it. I ve noticed that for a while now, my scrotum area has been itching alot, but it comes and goes. But I just ignored it because I thought it was normal. But lately, I ve realized it s probably a symptom of something. Is it just this chlamydia I have or is it something else? Or is it just normal? Mike, what the hell are you talking about?!?

This can happen due to Clamydia infection itself . Apply a soothing lotion or Calamine lotion for it. It will help. Complete the course of treatment prescribed to you for Chlamydia.

I was tested positive for Clamaydia a year ago, a few weeks after being treated i got back the burning sensation, and a constant urge to urinate. Presently i get the burning sensation off and on, my testicles are saggy and i can see like the veins clumped up together looking like a lump and then other times it looks like my testicles are swollen but i have no pain what so ever in my testicles.Around the crown of my penis and the under side it looks as if i have a rash, but its been there for a while now, it does not itch and i am circumsized.

Hi, I am a 33 Year Hindu MALE. From last 12 years, My testicles always hangs in the scrotum like balls very loosely and they are never tight. I always feel that they will be heart while I drive a Bike or Run, etc.
Earlier, they were perfectly alright and tight. About 12 years back, I started to have nocto-urinal emmisions (night-falls), every week. After some months, there were some filling of itching over the scrotum, I used to make itching by hand, many times to remove itching. After few months, I don't know what happened, testicle balls hangs all the time in the scrotum and are very loose since then. I feel Itching even now and then and I use to itch around the scrotum by hand and itching is gone.
I still have nocto-urinal emmisions (night-falls), after 15 days or 1 month. I even masturbate, sometimes, so that I could not have nocto-urinal emmisions (night-falls). I feel ashamed on it. When I have night-falls, I become awake just after that and can not easily fall asleep for another 1-2 Hrs., and all cloth become wet. I want to get rid of all these things.
I am very much worried about testicle balls always hanging in the scrotum and I never feel tightness in the testicles and scrotum. I am also worried about night-falls (noct-urinal emissions).
Is all this OK or something wrong?
I am still unmarried and want to marry very soon, but worried about wether I will be able to perform sexual activity satisfactorily or not? I am very concerned about it. I have never consulted any doctor or anybody for this problem.
Please help me or suggest me, accordingly.
In hope of quick response.

I have a very sensitive patch (burning itch) @ the base of my spine, top of butt crack. There is a rough "basketball skin" patch running down inside my butt cheek. Also between my thigh & scrotum & above the penis in the pubic hair is very red & itchy.Blue star ointment gives the only releif but burns terribly.Have tried otc antifungals, benadryl, neosporin, hydrocortizone...you name it, at wits end. Dr. said yeast infection use otc antifungal creme, already know that dont help. In agony please help.

Earlier this year I noticed a dark brown mark on my scrotum which at first I thought was a bruise. It is painless and completely flat. Looks probably like a liver spot and is about 1cm wide when I stretch/flatten out the skin. If anything the mark has faded rather than gone darker. Could it just be a liver spot or freckle - i am quite a freckled person. I'm 35 years of age.

Thanks

Hello. I am a 14 year old male and I have discovered a rash right in between my scrotum and anus, and there is another one right next to it. I have applied anti-itch cream to get rid of the itch, and I have to do that every couple of hours. It is red and feels rough and dry (until I add the cream). Please advise?

Can testicular torsion cause LOW grade pain?

doctor1 MD

Ok, I asked about this yesterday in the main forum. After thinking about it and being a little more clear headed, I decided to put it here in the "ask a specialist." Most of my question yesterday went unanswered. What was answered was very short...

I was diagnosed with intermittent testicular torsion 3 years ago and had orchiopexy performed with non absorbable sutures. Before the surgery my testicle would be backwards (180 degrees) 90% of the time or more and I had pain every day from it....
