Wink Itchy Scrotum... depression

Alright, I am 18 years old and my scrotum is fairly itchy. When I was a senior in high school I developed what was jock itch. This was around October of 2010. I never did anything about it thinking it would just go away. Not until around March I finally told my mom about it and she got me a doctors appointment. From October to March my scrotum itched uncontrollably. After going to the regular doctor they told me it was just jock itch, so I used the medication they gave me, and the visual part went away. Although it visually went away it has itched fairly bad to this day. I also went to the dermatologist and Neurologist but nothing has helped. As of now my scrotum looks perfectly normal, and is only red when I itch it, though there are multiple
very small white bumps where my hair grows on my scrotum.
I played soccer in high school, which probably caused the jock itch, but I do not know why it is persisting to itch. This problem drives me crazy, it depresses me a lot. It's almost been 2 years since the initial itch, and have tried multiple creams, pills, powders, and anything to help. If anyone has had/ has this problem, or has heard about my problem please help!

By the way I am 5 foot 8 130 pounds.

Thanks, Austin

Re: Itchy Scrotum... depression

Austin, I am a 22 yr old male. I had a very similar experience. After having slept on a filthy floor I had ringworm all over my body from itching it and allowing it to spread. However, I have not been able to control the jock itch; as I sweat profusely. This has had quite an impact on my physical and sexual life.
