I started feeling some pain a week ago... and flaky skin appreared 5 days back.
After using Cartizone creame Flaky skin dropped off... Now I have testicle part shiny, red in color with thin skin and slightly itchy.
Expert:  Dr Chip (M.D.) replied 7 years ago.
Two possibilities: A yeast--Candida--infection or lichen simplex. If cortisone cream was partially effective, it might be the second. I'd suggest trying over the counter Lamisil cream three times a day for a week. If that doesn't help, you'll need prescroption ketoconazole cream or oral keotconazole or fluconazole.
