Red face Raw Irritation Around Scrotum & Leg Crease Wont Go Away

I'm writing in for my husband. For the past month, he has been very irritated and raw around and on his scrotum. It extends to the crease of his legs on each side as well. He said that it does burn somewhat and also has a slight itch at times. He has tried everything over the counter we could think of. Some include goldbond powder, aloe, jock itch cream and spray, lanacane cream, herbal salve, Vaseline...nothing helps. He has gotten this before while playing golf and he says that it is worse when he gets hot. However, this time it just wont go away. This is week 4 and he still has it. He is one of those men who wont go to the doctor unless he is about to die. I suggested a doctor but he is a grown man and I can't force him to go. Does anyone know what this could be and what else he could try doing to make it go away and heal? Thanks so much!

Re: Raw Irritation Around Scrotum & Leg Crease Wont Go Away

Why enable him? When he gets tired of it, he will find the solution, or make an appointment to see the doctor. He really needs to take responsibility for caring for his own body.
If he didn't have you, what would he do?
All that being said, he could try corn starch in the crease. Another thing he could try is, believe it or not, what they do commonly in Russia for these things, apply raw green cabbage.
