Suggest remedy for soreness in scrotum and penis

My scrotum gets red, blotchy, painless patches, but then a thin layer of skin "disappears" (not peels) and has a severe stinging, burning pain. The entire front of my scrotum is red, though only the area above the testes stings, though the back bottom area has become sensitive. The patches are now appearing on my penis and I want to cure this before is worsens.

Hello,

Consult a general surgeon or a dermatologist at the earliest and get evaluated. Spreading lesions of the scrotum has to be managed properly because it might lead to deleterious complications like gangrene. You might require IV antibiotics also.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Shinas Hussain, General & Family Physician
