Customer Question
How to treat itching...

How to treat itching of the scrotum?

Doctor's Assistant: Can you tell me about all the symptoms you've noticed (e.g. itching, rash, new birthmarks or moles)?

Redness, and a bad itch.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the symptoms? What seems to make the symptoms worse or better?

Better with the use of Gold Bond methylated powder. Worse if I do nothing or scatch.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Nothing I can think of.

This is a yeast infection otherwise known as jock itch. Gold bond powder will not cure it. You can treat it with an over the counter antifungal. Lotrimin ultra or lotrimin gold. Apply twice a day for at least a week.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
