Hello from JustAnswer.Yes. If you will attach the picture, I would be glad to review the picture.Could you also list the symptoms that you are having?
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Ok so a month ago I noticed some small lumps on my scrotum and shaft. No itchiness no redness just feels like rough skin.I went to a walkin medical centre and a gum where three Dr's all said skin problem but gave me nothing. It's getting worse and these pictures were this morning

Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 9 months ago.
Thank you for the pictures. This looks to be severely inflamed that has resulted in significant thickening of the skin. There are many different factors that can contribute to dermatitis of the scrotum, but it can be due to a reaction to medicines applied to the scrotal skin. Have you been using any over the counter medicines for the scrotal skin?
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
No I've used e45 an over the counter psoriasis cream as I was told it could be that and talcum powder.I'm worried in case it's herpes or warts but I just want to treat it now and get rid
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 9 months ago.
It does not look like herpes or warts. The E45 is generally OK to use. It also would be OK to use a mild over the counter hydrocortisone cream for a short course for relief of inflammation. It also would be reasonable to avoid any tight clothing, either underwear or tight pants/jeans. It frequently is helpful to soak in warm water to which Epsom salt has been added. It is true that psoriasis can be the cause of inflammation of the scrotum or penis, and the above interventions may help, but if there is persistent inflammation, it may require stronger medicines that are only available by prescription, such as tacrolimus or pimecrolimus. These are only available by prescription, so it would be necessary to discuss this with your doctor. If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.
