How to Naturally Heal Scrotal Eczema

Posted

In a previous blog post, we discussed many ways to heal groin eczema. However, many men can suffer from something known as scrotal eczema as well. This condition affects the scrotum and the bag of skin containing the testicles.

Similarly to groin eczema, this form of dermatitis can be extremely embarrassing and uncomfortable due to thin, sensitive skin. This area is also more prone to inflammation and irritation because it is both warm and moist.

Scrotum eczema symptoms include:

  • Rash
  • Itching
  • Swelling
  • Dry, scaly skin

Like groin eczema, scrotum dermatitis can be easily confused for jock itch. Jock itch is a fungal infection that resembles groin or scrotal eczema, but is actually contagious, unlike dermatitis.

To properly diagnose your skin condition, we recommend visiting a professional doctor. Seeking medical attention can help you diagnose your condition faster and find relief.

Scrotal Eczema Treatment

1) Skincare

There are various skincare and clothing treatments you can use to help relieve scrotal eczema symptoms. 

In terms of skincare, it's best to find nourishing and natural products that can be used on sensitive parts. We recommend:

Organic Manuka Skin Soothing Cream– a gentle, nourishing cream that can be used on all sensitive parts. Absolutely no burning or stinging.

Emily Skin Soother’s Soap for Eczema– keeping sensitive, moist areas clean are extremely important. This soap is soothing and uses Chinese herbs for skin inflammation and irritation.

2) Sensitive Underwear

When suffering from scrotal eczema, it's important to keep that area clean and dry. This area can get rather moist and wet, so it's important to opt for underwear that is moisture wicking.

Also opting for 100% organic cotton underwear that are allergy-free will not only keep skin protected against rougher fabrics, but will also keep skin dry and free from irritation. Here are a couple of underwear options we recommend:

We also recommend trying these Remdywear boxer briefs that use TENCEL and zinc-embedded fibers to soothe irritated skin. In fact, they are clinically proven [1] to reduce inflammation and itchy skin in just three nights!

3) Wet and Dry Wrap Therapy

Other scrotal eczema treatments that have been used for fast relief from inflammation and irritation are wet and dry wrap therapy. Both these methods use an emollient and garment (bandage, cloth, clothing) to further penetrate skin. 

For additional dry or wet layers, make sure to check out Remedywear clothing for eczema that offers shirts and pants for both kids and adults.

Lastly, you can wet or dry wrap with the above allergy-free underwear recommendations!

4) Elimination Diet

If the above recommendations are not providing relief, then perhaps its time to think about food allergens! Unfortunately, many cases of eczema are actually triggered by food allergens like gluten, dairy, soy, nuts and more.

An elimination diet works by removing these allergens from your diet for a certain period of time and then reintroducing them in order to test a reaction.

If you're looking for more information on elimination diets or want to try one yourself, we suggest checking out our blog post here
