I got a rash on my scrotum which I believe to be contact dermatitis
from sexual intercourse with a woman of questionable nature. I used a condom during intercourse, and there was no unprotected sex. Since that time, I have had itching, burning, and redness in my scrotum and the base of my penis, which radiates to my legs and rectal area. I have pain while sitting down. If I don’t use a steroid cream every day, it becomes painful for me to sit down for long periods of time. My scrotum is a bright pink color all of the time, and bright red after taking a shower.
This rash has not spread to my legs or other parts of my body. But my scrotum gets irritated by heat, and sitting down for long periods of time. By the end of a day of sitting, it has a scaly appearance. Haven’t seen normal skin color on my scrotum for 2 months now.
Standing seems to temporarily relieve these symptoms. I also have blushing in my face and different parts of my body, and sometimes experience hot flashes since I got this condition. Have had it for about 2 months now.
My testicles are a more normal color only in the morning when I first wake up. I feel like this is a vascular problem, because I feel it in other parts of my body, not just in my scrotum. Have seen the term “Red Scrotum Syndrome” on the Internet -- I believe that I have this, but that the condition is also vascular.
I have used various steroid creams for 4-6 weeks which have failed to resolve my problem.
I tried 2 weeks of doxycycline antibiotics but this did not work.
Please advise if you have any ideas of what I could do with this type of condition to make it better.
