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 11 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 11 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 11 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 11 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 11 months ago.

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

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Here are two.pics
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 11 months ago.

I have seen those pictures.

You can apply those creams here as I wrote above.

I hope those will help.
