It is not uncommon for the skin beneath your scrotum to occasionally feel itchy. The scrotal sac contains the testicles, which are responsible for producing sperm and testosterone. However, keep in mind that sweat in the groin area can lead to irritation and itching of the scrotum. The itchiness can be caused by various factors, both physical and medical in nature.
To elaborate on potential sources of scrotal irritation, here are four possibilities according to information from WebMD:
Extended periods of exercise may cause redness and irritation of the skin. According to healthline The genital area is particularly susceptible to dryness when exposed to dry heat. Inflammation of the skin around the vagina may also result in redness and rashes.
2. Fungal Infection
Improper hygiene and unprotected sexual contact can lead to a fungal infection of the scrotal sac. Fungi are present everywhere and can cause a range of infections, including candidiasis. If left untreated, the infection can worsen.
3. Genital Herpes (HSV-3)
This virus can be transmitted through sexual contact, and it may cause irritation of the scrotal sac. The virus can spread through direct skin-to-skin contact with an infected person.
4. Scabies (Pubic Lice)
Lice infest the pubic hair, leading to irritation around the genital area. Physical contact with an infected person is the only way to contract this parasite. While pubic lice do not transmit diseases, they can cause significant discomfort and itchiness in the scrotal sac.
