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.

I had a brazilian wax about 7 months ago.. Skin and a subsequent burn 4.5 cm x 2.5 cm was removed from scrotum. I'm under the care of a dermatologist and urologist. We've tried everything from adhesive syslastic gel, aquaphore, scrotal sling, etc. Recommendation, since it is in a moist area with friction and the healing process waxes and wanes. Recommendation from both dermatologist and Urologist, excision and removal of inflammed tissue. Your thoughts I do not smoke, have diabetes, etc.

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...
