Hello,I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query.Apparently you have developed a fungal infection of thew scrotum.You will probably need oral antifungal agents like Terbinafine/Ketoconazole/Itraconazole along with local application of antifungals like Clotrimazole/Lotrimin.THis will need to be taken for longer than normal period as you have lowered immunity due to your anticancer therapy.Your doctor /PCP would also like to rule out any superadded bacterial infection which may require antibiotics.Again the course will be longer than normal due to weakened immunity.You will need to use cotton undergarments and keep the area dry .Thorough drying after a bath and use of Abzorb powder to keep the area dry will help.Controlling any elevated blood sugar will be essential for the healing.

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.

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.
