Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have these white bumps on my scrotum. They are pretty much like pimples with pus in them. They only show up on warm days and when I walk a lot throughout the day. I am using Calamine lotion at night and in a day they completely go away. They do not hurt, but it just feels like a rash. I work out a lot and have big thighs and pretty big testicles. I guess there is a lot of friction. What can I do for this?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

It is a case of friction blister with superimposed fungal infection especially candidal. Sweating andfriction lead to maceration, which is responsible for this disease. Instead of Calamine, I suggest Clotrimazole powder two to three times daily. It will not only acts against the fungus but also reduce friction. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her, and take the medicine with consent. Keep the area dry after activity by wiping it with a clean towel and applying powder before and during active days in order to reduce friction. Nothing much you can do except to avoid the activity.

    Thank you doctor,

    The only problem is the activity and I cannot avoid it in my job. I will try the cream and keeping it dry as much as possible.


    Welcome back to icliniq.com.

    I can understand your situation, but it has to be controlled in this way only. Always have a dry, clean, soft towel with you to wipe off the sweat. Also, please check your blood sugar as it is pretty common in diabetics and is an indicator of poorly controlled diabetes.

    Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
