I have read your previous enquiry on a patient that had itchy-cracks on his scrotum and I am experiencing the same. I also have some white spots on my penis, also in the head. I did some tests before to see if it was a fungus, but the results were negative. I have been having this issue for the past year and it is scattering around more and more. Please help. Thank you.

Yes, the scrotum is dry and itchy. Sometimes, it gets really itchy and I just want to scratch but I am not sure if it is a burning sensation. I am using an ointment compounded by Salicylic acid 2.2 % and Benzoic acid 4.4 %. Any idea why there are white spots on the penis? Thank you.

Stop using this ointment. You seem to have scrotal dermatitis. You can use plain emollient instead like Cetaphil moisturizing cream repeatedly.
The white spots seem to be post inflammatory hypopigmentation and will resolve by itself. This happens due to some prior inflammatory process over the area. No active intervention is needed.
If you have any further queries, please feel free to contact me.
