I've had itchy scrotum for over 10 years. It's so bad now that I wake
up in the middle of night by my scratching. It often bleeds due to
excessive scratching and sometimes it burns when I walk. I've visited a
dermatologist and all he could offer me is some kind of steroid ointment
advising that I shouldn't use it for too long. Anybody have similar
experience? I need help. Thanks in advance.

Have you asthma or exzema?

It could be jock itch,caused by fungus,or Erythrasma,caused by
bacteria.I would recommend biopsying it and subsequently have a
treatment.

yep,this may sound stupid,but the only way i resolved the scracthing at
night,was to wear a pair of cheap boxing gloves or pratice mitts,
when your brain get used to scracthing at night,it never switches off,
give it a try,stops the use of steriods,and them useless cotton gloves
the dermatologist gives you,
remember if you can bend your fingers you can scratch...

Betnovate was prescribed to me, and worked fine - clears up very quickly
after applying it. But I think the root cause is related to yeast....seems
to flare up after I've had a night out on the beer, or if I've eaten lots of
bread!!
If this sound familiar, try cutting out these for a while, and see if it
helps.
