Testicles Itchy!!

I don't know what's going on, but for a while now my testicles have been very very itchy, so itchy they start bleeding from me scratching so hard. You can see the places where I have scratched because there are scabs in those places. My penis however is not itchy one bit, it's just the skin on my testicles. It's not itchy 24/7. But they itch everyday. I've even tried anti itch creams and all that. Nothing seems to be working. Any help would be appreciated Thanks.

Re: Testicles Itchy!!

Cant really think of a common cause.. But have you done anything new.. such as changed your laundry powder or changed shower gel/soap etc.

Sorry i cant be more help, im sure someone on here has a solution.

Re: Testicles Itchy!!

We'll thanks for trying, I haven't changed detergents or soap or anything. I'm kind of stumped myself, although I no it's not a concern, it's just extremely itchy and it was never like that before.

I have had that problem once before. It happened maybe few days to a week after I had trimmed down there.
The itching would be unbelievable. It went away in a week or two after I stopped touching the area.
Sometimes just a minor itch can cause the area to become more itchy, etc etc. And it gets worse and worse.

Possibly scabies?

Re: Testicles Itchy!!

had that problem once lasted for a few months doctors couldnt figure it out ether, they just gave me some cream which i was told was only slightly stronger than store bought.

But i figured it out on my own. What was causing it was my soap. With me I didnt realize it but a small amount of soap was staying in my pubic hair after i rinsed off in the shower. This was causing a localized fungus alot like jock itch to grow. So way I fixed is to used the cream make sure you rinse real good and dry. Then apply the cream and make sure you do this everyday. Also dont stop using the cream cause it stops itching. You should continue two weeks or so after it stops. The doctor told me in some cases the fungus can go into remission and then people stop treating it then it comes right back.

Re: Testicles Itchy!!

The problem according to my dermatologist is due to sweat, dye from jocks etc, and detergent residue. Avoid washing jocks in detergent, used shorts type of jocks, use safe soap for washing/bathing. You may need to keep the area clean and lubricated with light oil like virgin coconut oil or liquid parafin. Main thing is to resist the temptation to itch. Anti allergic tabs could help if it gets too bad
