Re: Red Burning Tingling Scrotum
I have been following these threads regarding red sticky clammy wet scrotum, as i have had the same condition for about 8 months.
i too, had every possible medical test. Including skin scrapings.
i had tried everything also - dermatologist creams, anti fungal, strong antibiotics, prescription cortisone creams, powders = everything.
When i would get out of the shower, my scrotum and genital area, would immediately become red and sticky after toweling dry. I would drown it in every powder you can think of - as this was the only thing that was helping.
Nothing truly really worked, and by 6pm every day, the sticky red clammy wet painful scrotum returned.
I also think this is some type of either unknown fungal or bacterial skin infection, that is transmitted from person to person.
I am on a brand new regiment, and after lots and lots of research, it seems to be working.
Within about 2 days on this new regimen, my symptoms had started to subside and disappear. It has now been 1 week. I know that is not a lot of time, but it seems to be getting better very quickly.
I am not a doctor, but after consulting many doctors, online research, and medical books and papers, this is the regiment i am currently taking for my personal trial and it is working thus far for me, as of 1 week.
i have no idea which of the below is causing this to condition to go away, as i started all of them around the same exact time. But trying to rule out both a bacterial and/or fungal infection.
*Cipro 2 times a day
*Bactrim 2 times a day
*Tumeric capsule 2 times a day - natural remedy for staph skin infections
*Goldenseal capsule 2 times a day - again natural remedy for skin
*Echinacea capsule 2 times a day - again natural remedy for skin
*Wiping my groin, penis, and scrotum with isopropyl alcohol wipes 2-3 times a day. Wiping them really good. This will burn for a minute or so, and then it will subside.
*After the alcohol wipes, applying clortrimazole cream to groin/scrotum
*After the clortrimazole cream, applying Zeasorb powder to groin/scrotum
Again, i am not a doctor, but this is what is currently actually starting to work for me.
I think out of everything in that top list, what actually may be the solution is the isopropyl alcohol wipes. Which cost about $4.00, and look like baby wipes, but are alcohol rub.
The isopropyl alcohol wipes would most likely kill anything on the skin that was either fungal or bacterial.
I read about other guys using Listerine, which worked for them. Well listerine is just alcohol. So someone is onto something!
i keep you posted, but i had to post, after reading about 1000 posts by other guys with this same situation…i knew i should write my story and my personal regiment that seems to be working thus far!
