Rash on the scrotum. Got worse on applying hydrocortisone. Advice?

Hello I have this rash on the left side of my scrotum that started out like a white color with black bumps and was not all that painful. I got hydrocortisone for it and after using it for a couple days it got worse and now the rash has open sores and they burn super bad. Please help, I'm going to the doc this afternoon but I'm sitting at work freaking out about it.

Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, I would suggest you that you should also add antifungal and antibiotic as local application in addition to hydrocortisone.

You can use local application of antibiotic like gentamycin and antifungal like miconazole for relief.

If pus is present you can get a culture/sensitivity test of the pus done to know the appropriate antibiotic.

Keep the area clean and dry.
If the problem persists, get yourself examined clinically.

I hope this is helpful to you.
