What causes abscess on scrotum?

My insurance with my job wants me to give them a description on how and why I recently got an abcess on my scrotom. I m not sure why it happens but I hate them and honestly wants to know also why I get them. Can you explain why I got a abcess on my scrotum near my groin.

thanks for your query

abscess in scrotum may be because of poor hygiene. if you have abscess anywhere in the body and scratch there and scratch the scrotum, chances of spread of abscess is common. one more reason is if you are diabetic, chances of abscess is more. please maintain hygiene and get your blood sugar checked

thank you
