Please help me! itchy scrotum all of the timeHi,
For the past 7 years i have been constantly itchy around my genitals.
I have been to the std clinic, tested for all the usual which came back -ve. However i found out i was not tested for genital warts or herpers (crappy NHS in the UK say they have no test for this). I have also paid to see a demotoligst but he thinks i have hyper sensetivity in the affected area. They all seem to think the itchy problem is in my head.
It is not, i am constantly itchy throughout the day, the area feels moist and sweaty but the skin seems dry. The pubic hair feels bristle and prickly but has not been shaved, only trimmed. I also have what appear to be large hair folicals on my genitals. I guess the itchyness could be related to them because it is in the same area. All around the scrotum and base of penis. When I get itchy it is sometimes like a sharp pinching pain in all different parts of the affected area.
ifeel very self concious of this problem and when I itch you can sort of see my mouth move, it makes me tense and and my mouth does not sit comfortably closed.
Please, please can u help me, any ideas of what you think is wrong, this is driving me crazy.

try then putting some pure aloe vera gel on the area after washing (most comfortable probably if you do this at night when you can leave the area free of clothes - in rare instances people can be sensitive to aloe vera so only continue if it helps and stop if it makes it worse - I would recommend using the fresh juice from aloe vera cactus plant rather than the stuff bought in a tube then it is purer.
the remedy sulphur may help as may the remedy croton tiglion. read about these and see if you think the symptoms match your symptoms.
I am sure the doctors would have said if they suspected herpes, warts or similar - it sounds more like a kind of eczema?
Do not worry about the appearance of the hair follicles, just keep the area comfortable, clean and aired. Avoid tight underwear and tight trousers.

How did you get on with homeopathic remedies? I have a very similar condition to that you've described. I also went to the std clinic but wasn't diagnosed with anything. Your description of a sharp, pinching pain very well sums up the sensation I experience (although much of the time it is a less specific itching). Occasionally, the itching is highly localised and I've scratched away at one tiny area until it becomes incredibly sore.
I have a certain sympathy with the hyper-sensitivity theory. About 5 years ago, I caught scabies from an infected mattress. Scabies is associated with a lot of itching, especially in the genital area. It's hard to say after the event (because at the time, I wasn't expecting the saga to continue, so didn't pay that much attention), but I have the sense that my genital itching has persisted from that time (i.e. from when I got rid of scabies). This suggests that the scabies led to hypersensitivity in that area.
If it is 'all in the head', that's annoying, as there doesn't seem to be anything concrete that can be done. That said, anything you can convince yourself 'works', should do the job. I'd be very interested to hear whether you've had success with anything.

The only one that works for every one is URTICA URENS....take in mother tincture form...5 drops in 1/8th glass of water ..four times a day.
Don't use soaps. Also change your diet...chances are there is extra Uric Acid in your body.
Eat more alkaline foods..reduce on meats, spices, acidic foods etc.
For list of alkaline foods ...search on the net thru google.
Also run your symptoms on the Remedy finder here and post names of top three meds that emerge as result on Remedy Grid.

By mistake i posted here.From here on i will post my feedback
only on my own thread.
Jhon:- i don't think cortison will help me. i tried zeabsorb powder and cortisone creams separately.Even if it makes me feel better, it is temperory.Thanks for your suggestion john.
I believe only homeopathy alone can help me.I am following Pankaj's prescription right now.

One dose is two pellets dissolved in a table spoon of water.
Make sure that there are no odors on you, aroung you, and in his mouth, while taking the medicine.

1. CLEAN and clean well. Antibacterial shower gel does a MUCH better job that bar soap or non-antibacterial gel. Clean those balls!!!!
2. DRY. Use a blowdryer on your balls and get all the moisture. Heck, I bought a woman's blow dryer and set it on medium (so i don't burn myself) and it does a great job.
3. I've actually found athletes foot spray a great thing to keep away fungus. This may not be your thing, but it seems to work well. Try to get the non-powdered kind.
4. Remember to always use powder. There are two kidns of powder. USE CORNSTARCH BASED POWDER!!! THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT! Talc based powder will eventually cause very uncomfortable rashes and chafing. Wal-Mart sell their equate version of Gold Bond for reallll cheap.
Welp that's all I have for now. And yes, my balls still itch a lot.... But if I didn't do this every time I took a shower I'd be itching a lot more.

The best medicine is Synalar Gel. This medicine would not cure the itch, but it'd make it stop.
However, this medication is not available in the US. Synalar cream is available in the US, but the result is not as good as the gel. I googled this product and I found it's available in Canada. So, you might want to buy on-line.
