My Diagnosis: "Itchy scrotum"

So I went to a dermatologist and was surprised to find I have "itchy scrotum" syndrome. Never heard of this before. Have any of you?

I, of course, have itching on my entire testical area and at the base of the penis. I have tried jock itch creams and they don't work (or make things worse). So I went to the derm and he said I don't have a fungus/yeast infection (he said by looking only and not with any tests). He said I have itchy scrotum syndrome and said to keep area dry. He also proscribed hydrocortisone cream, which didn't help.

So since I still don't have any relief I was wondering if anyone here can help. Ever heard of this? The scrotum isn't red so I don't think it has anything to do with red scrotum. Do you think there is something else causing the itch (maybe internal) or should I just accept the diagnosis and live with it?

Re: My Diagnosis: "Itchy scrotum"

There are 8 threads relating to this, but under the heading Red Scrotum Syndrome. Like you, I have itchy scrotum and no redness, but follow this thread anyway looking for clues. If you look below you will see the latest one and its easy to find the previous 8 threads using the search function. Good luck
