Customer Question

Scrotum skin irritation on the left side side, this is the 2nd time I've notice it before, 1st time I went to the ER. dr said it was just a abrasion. and sent me on my way. I do notice when I have this issue, I have really dry/oily skin folds. Not sure if this has anything to do with it but just stating the obvious.

This is definitely an infection

it looks like an abscess that needs drained

you need to go back to ER Sedrick.
