I am 29 years old. I am suffering from itching genitalia for over 5-6 years and the severity would range from low to medium. It is mostly due to sweating in that area. I used to apply itch guard for a few days and it used to get fine. Now, over four to five months I have severe itching on my genitals that is in the penis, testicles and also the area below. I am using Candiderma powder frequently. But, when the problem increases I apply Quadriderm ointment at night for 2-3 days. There is also a lot of flaking and cracking of skin. I have attached the pictures of it. I usually end up itching while sleeping too. What can be the problem? What medication and precaution should I take?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Your problem seems to have lingered on to become a chronic hyperkeratotic scrotal eczema.
This is a result of your hyperallergic tendency, constant scratching, sweat induced maceration and intermittent but incomplete treatments with suboptimal medicines.
Till you revert with the answers, I advice you to do the following:
2. Tight undergarments.
3. Constant scratching.
4. Application of inappropriate creams intermittently.
1. Blood sugar levels fasting and postprandial.
2. Serum levels of IgE antibodies.
