I am 30 year old male, I have been having a burning

Customer Question

I am 30 year old male, I have been having a burning sensation on and off on my butt cheeks, and extends to top of scrotum, between my penis. It's like a burning, hot sensation. Got a urine test and came back negative for everything, can it be dry skin? Or what can it be??

Thank you for your question.
I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.

Is there any rash, redness? change in skin?

When did the symptom develop?

How frequently do you feel it?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
No rash no nothing, I felt it last week one day, then 2 days it was gone, then it's back today again. Only when I sit, I drive for a living and it just feels real hot down there sometimes.
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 7 months ago.

Thank you for all the information.

The burning sensation can be due to pressure on nerve.

Increase in pressure during certain posture can precipitate the sensation

This can occur in the spine & radiate towards the front side.

Kidney or urinary causes like infection or stone are other possibilities.

Your urine test result was good.

You can have an ultrasound or scan.

I would suggest to discuss those points with your doctor.

I hope this information helps.

If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.

If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.

Ultrasound was done 4 months ago and everything good, am i too young for prostatitis? I had blood drawn last October, and everything wa fine, so you think nerve huh?
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 7 months ago.

Prostatitis can occur in this age too.

Hypertrophy would not occur in your age.

CT or MRI of spine can be considered.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Well it's not really a burn, it's like I have icy hot down there, on bottom of penis shaft, and top of testicles area.
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 7 months ago.

In your original question you wrote burning sensation.

Anyway, there can be paresthesia related to nerve.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
How can I treat it?
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 7 months ago.

Physiotherapy can be an option.
If there is a pinching of nerve, steroid injection can help.
