Thanks for your question. When there’s an itching and burning sensation by the testicles and penis it’s a good time to see your health care provider. These symptoms may suggest a fungal skin infection called tinea cruris, or jock itch. They may also suggest a possible sexually transmitted infection. Your health care provider will likely perform a genital exam and may send tests for sexually transmitted infections. They can then prescribe medicine to help treat your symptoms.
Here’s a tip on how to bring it up to your health care provider: “I have some itching and burning by my testicles. Is there any medicine that can help?”
