I have itchy boils on the scrotum and groin areas. During the day, I feel too itchy, and due to the itching, I have developed rashes which are painful. When I try to break them, it starts to bleed. Sometimes, I have the itchiness during the night as well. I have attached an image for your consideration.
I have a similar itchy problem around my anus too, and I feel that the skin around that area is very dry. Earlier, I had similar boils around the anus which eventually subsided, but I do feel itchy at times. Currently, I am using Lulizol cream and Diominic SR tablets, but, I do not get the desired relief, though it is slightly better than when I was using the Candid B cream.
Thanks for replying. I have visited a dermatologist and my current medications have been prescribed by him. He says it is a fungal infection. He also suggested to visit a surgeon to get the boils removed, but I am afraid of undergoing a surgery. Do you also feel I need a surgery?
Thanks for replying. I am not in favor of excision right now. Will the above drugs and cream reduce the itching and skin tags? With the Lulizol cream, the thickness of the boils have reduced, and in some places has subsided. So I would prefer to wait so I can avoid excision. Please guide me. Also, can you give me more clarity regarding the medications?
I have been taking the above medicines and creams for the past 12 days. I believe it has helped to reduce the infection. I attach the pictures taken after bath today. But, I do feel itchy sometimes in the afternoon, and at night mainly around 3.00 am. I itch a lot on my scrotum and then again apply lotion. Could you please check the pictures? I feel the skin around scrotum to be too dry when I become itchy. One thing that I missed to inform is that I am diabetic and also have high blood pressure for which I do take medication.
I do itch in the lower abdomen but not in web spaces. Why do I itch in the middle of the night at around 3 am? My skin around scrotum feels dry and thick. Further, the skin around inner thigh has gone black.
It is due to inflammation there is itchy feeling. Thickening of skin over scrotum is not due to fungal infection but due to growth over the scrotum. You need to get it evaluated by clinical examination. Also, a skin biopsy can be done to confirm the diagnosis of the same. Darkening will eventually subside once infection resolves.
