After a bladder stone removal operation, to avoid infection,

Customer Question

After a bladder stone removal operation, to avoid infection, hospital staff gave:
Keflex, Cypro and Cephalexin, not at the same time.
The scrotum skin lost its elasticity entirely.
Immediately taken off the above medicines and over time an ointment restored normalcy.
That was 1993.
In later years, the scrotum skin was painful at times, especially on the bicycle.
To this day I am much troubled with pain. even just sitting in a chair after a few minutes. The family doctor prescribed: Hyderm Cream 1%. Some but no complete solution.
Can I use Clotrimazole Cream 1 % ?

This is Dr. David

you can try the clotrimazole 1% cream, but this is an antifungal cream and most likely won't help too much

painful scrotal skin sounds like nerve damage or neuropathy or neuropathic pain caused by the bladder stone operation or antibiotic therapy at that point.

you should see a neurology nerve doctor about your scrotal pain

there are prescription nerve pain medications like Gabapentin (Neurontin) or Pregabain (Lyrica) which can help decrease nerve related pain.

have you consulted with a neurologist about your scrotal pain yet?
