My scrotum is red...

My scrotum is red and burns a little.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the redness? Have you used any medication for it?

It started about 3weeks ago. I used gold Bond and it got much better and went away. I stopped using it for 2 days and it's back

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about the redness?

I have an appointment Friday. Was just wondering what it is

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

I'm allergic to caffine

Ok

Got it--thanks

That's basically jock itch--a fungal infection

Nothing to do with hygiene--can just happen

You can use over the counter topical clotrimazole cream twice a day for two weeks to clear it up

Please let me know if you need any more information

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

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.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
