Dr.Amita :

Hello

Dr.Amita :

It looks like you have fungal infection of the scrotum because it is also more in humid and wet conditions. You need to see a doctor to confirm the diagnosis by proper examination and start anti-fungal creams.

Customer:

thank you...what could cause it and why is it only on one side?

Dr.Amita :

it could be caused by poor hygiene, diabetes, low immunity, from sexual contact with infected woman, antibiotic use. Only on one side is by chance. Maintain good personal hygiene, wear loose cotton clothes, avoid any cosmetic application.

Dr.Amita :

Are you still there.

Customer:

Ahh..ok

Customer:

just trying to think

Customer:

my hygiene is good, no diabetes

Customer:

immunity might be a bit low

Customer:

or I might have got it then from my girlfriend

Customer:

is it a std?

Customer:

we are in a exclusive relationship hmm

Dr.Amita :

No it is not an STD

Customer:

This is slightly embarrasing...

Customer:

apologies for all the questions, the fact that it is a white spot which are wrinkly..will it go away eventually? The white spot now

Customer:

skin wrinkly

Dr.Amita :

If it is a fungal infection it will go away with anti-fungal creams.

Customer:

Thank you doc, can I just go and buy a anti fungal cream or must I go to a docter?

Dr.Amita :

I would suggest you to first s visually.how it to a doctor to confirm the diagnosis by seeing it
