Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

From the photograph (attachment removed to protect patient identity) and symptoms my diagnosis is folliculitis of scrotum which is nothing but infection of the hair follicle.

First we should rule out whether you are a diabetic or not. For that get a blood sugar test done.

Avoid synthetic underwear.

Treatment would be a course of antibiotics preferably Ampiclox (mixture of Ampicillin and Cloxacillin).

Revert back after the blood sugar test to a urologist online --> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/urologist
