Peeling on my scrotum?

So one day I came home from a dance rehearsal and I sweat a lot *down there* and was too exhausted to shower or do anything else. So I just went to bed when I got home. The next day I showered. Two days later I go to the bathroom and I notice a lot of scaly flaky skin on my scrotum and it was really itch and peeling. Also kind of shiny after I peeled the flakes off. And I was completely shocked. I've been showering everyday now and applying tea tree oil following with coconut oil. However its not going away really and its been 3 days. The flakiness returned a little bit the third day, but not as bad as the first day. Its only on my scrotum and no where else. Its not itchy at all, still red and a bit shiny. Whats wrong with me? Am I treating it the right way?

Hi, This could be due to sweat dermatitis or even jock itch - due to tinea infection. You should keep the skin clean and dry, avoid clothing that rubs and irritates the area. You need to wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. Apply calamine lotion at the site of the lesions and see if it helps. You could take some oral antihistamine medications like cetrizine or loratadine. You need to maintain a good personal hygiene. Wear lose comfortable clothes. Application of topical over-the-counter antifungal or drying powders, such as those that contain miconazole, clotrimazole, or tolnaftate would help. If the symptoms persist - it would be best that he consult a doctor. Regards.

Scrotum peeling can be due to dermatitis skin, eczema, fungal infection or dry skin. Get it checked from a dermatologist. If it is eczema then you need to apply good moisturizers and topical steroids.
