What causes itching in scrotum?

Went to see a dermatologist for itchy scrotum.Dermatologist checked the scrotum and found no visible skin irritation. Thought we might want to see a neurologist. What would I search on to find out information about nerves/spinal cord abnormailities causing scrotum to itch?

Hi,
Thanks for writing in.

There are many simple conditions which can cause itching in scrotum.

Some conditions can be:
1. Ring worm infection or any other infection in early stages
2. Scaly skin
3. Allergy to use of latex condoms.
4. Using harmful chemicals in soaps
5. Tight inner wear causing sweat accumulation
6. Poor genital hygiene

Neurological problems causing itching in scrotum are something least likely.
