Hi,
You might have insect bite before.Due to itching area became more sore leading to infection resulting into pus.
You require one course of antibiotic and anti allergic tablet for itching.Clean that area with anti bacterial lotion and then dressing with antibiotic cream.

Hello, I have had this problem for about two years. I have a rash or at least something that resembles a rash on my scrotum. It seems like my scrotum feels hot at most points throughout the day. There is a burning and pinching sensation on the bottom area below/behind the left testicle at times. It requires me to constantly re-adjust myself throughout the day. It is very uncomfortable to deal with. I feel normal right now when just relaxing; however, it seems to become more irritated towards the end of the day after moving around constantly. It kind of looks like my scrotum is red on both sides with a 1” area of regularity running up and down in the center of the scrotum. My scrotum feels very-very dry most of the time and sticks to my thighs/taint (area between scrotum and anus) a lot. At first I thought it was jock itch or something – I have tried multiple creams and no improvement. Although, I don t think it is an STD - It fits none of the symptoms for any of them (I’ve done extensive research on STD’s and always check myself every day to be sure of no signs). I have never had sores or anything like that. I haven t had sex with too many partners. I am 26 and I have only had 4 partners throughout my entire life and all where relationships – not one night stands with strangers. When I did have sex - I used protection every time; not just out of the fear of a possible STD – but to make sure she never got pregnant. I’m not ready for that type of responsibility in my life. Also… When this irritation first starting taking place – it was at a time in my life when I wasn’t sexually active for some length of time. I’m not sure what this can be – I don’t have health insurance and make less than 6k a year – I’m a college student. So finically – I just can’t afford to see a doctor or even completely fill up my gas tank really. I’m at a loss and could really use some help. Thank you.

I have a rash under the skin flap on my belly. I m obese and I ve had the rash on and off my lifetime it is progressively gotten worse. Can you help me by telling me what this is and how to best treat it. I shower once or twice a day to help with the soreness. This is the only thing that seems to help.
