What is your question exactly?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Forgot to mention I have had no sexual contact with anyone since 1983.I’m a Schizophrenic and I Can’t have intimate relationships with people. The medications I take haven’t changed over the years so the itchy balls I’m experiencing isn’t a side effect of any medicine I’m taking.
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.

A side effect can develop any time, even after years.

Psoriasis has a distintive rash, not simply itching.

I would talk to your doctor about the medications.

Also, about the appearance of the skin.

Also, other things that can cause this.

allergic reaction

fungal reaction if there is a rash.

liver or kidney problems

iron deficiency

internal parasites

gallbladder problems

heavy metal toxicity

Usually, the itching would be more widespread in such cases.
