He has sensitive skin, but he does not excessively sweat, no peeling of skin, just discoloration. And severe itching of testicles during the night. He is not currently taking any medicines and does not suffer from dry skin.


thanks,

From what you describe following possibility that comes to mind includes
Acanthosis nigricans ( For a detailed reading on this condition kindly go through the following resource.)

His blood sugar levels should be checked as well to rule out diabetes.

Also for itching 1% hydrocortisone cream can be applied in the scrotal area.


I hope this helps
