Thank you for the information & picture.
There can be a thickened skin.
Trauma to skin can initiate it.
Allergy, dermatitis can cause it.
You can wait & watch.
You can apply warm moist compress.
You can apply hydrocortisone cream which is available OTC.
If there is no improvement, I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.

Does this not look like a wart or std?
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 2 months ago.

Wart is usually firm & surface is rough.

Yours is soft.

Herpes usually cause pain, blisters.

Those are often multiple.

So it does not appear like those.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I work out in the heat and sun and at times my scrotum itches aswell when i shave it. So i could you help with that?
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 2 months ago.

Sweating, itching can cause irritation.

It can predispose to fungal infection too.

Please try to use cotton underwear.

You can apply Lamisil cream along with hydrocortisone.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I do that i stay away from cotton under wear and use runners shorts being that thaay are much not as thick and fast drying. I can send you a pic if you like
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 2 months ago.

You need to see that it is well ventilated & there is less sweating so that the skin remains dry.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Here are two.pics
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 2 months ago.

I have seen those pictures.

You can apply those creams here as I wrote above.

I hope those will help.
