Please help..

This is embarrasing, and very odd to me, but recently my balls have become dry and cracky. I have masturbated only a few times in my lifetime, for a period of about less than a year, but once every day or more. Im worried becuase someone told me this means im sterile now. Please help... it doesn't make sense to me.

Re: Please help..

I can't say that dry/cracked testicles means that you are sterile. It means that you have dry/cracked skin on your testicles. It is summer, and chaffing does occur in that area for many men.

If treating it with home remedies (like Desitin) doesn't help, then maybe you should see your doctor for some kind of medicated ointment.

Good Luck, but don't worry about being sterile at this point dude.

Not masturbating, just like masturbating will not make you sterile!!

Have you tried putting some hand lotion or creme on your scrotum, if it is just dry skin this will help. Also be wary of the soap / shower gel you are using, it may just be too strong. Make sure you dry yourself really well in your groin after showers/baths and make sure your underwear is clean and not been washed in any detergent that you may be allergic to.

You dont say how long you have been like this, but if it has not gone away after a week for so having examined all the factors above, then check with your doctor.

More thoughts...

Baby oil applied liberally twice a day will help if it is just dry skin

A thought here - it could be a fungal infection - any good athletes foot creme and powder applied twice a day will clear this up in a few days, providing you make sure you wear clean underwear daily, and try to keep the area as unsweaty as possible. Make sure you wear cotton not man made underwear.
