What to do about pruritus scroti.


Pruritus scroti is a common clinical disorder that is caused by various inflammatory disorders, infections, infestations, and neoplasms. Laboratory evaluation, including bacterial and fungal cultures, microscopic examination, skin biopsies, and measurement of blood glucose levels, is useful in establishing the diagnosis. Management of pruritus scroti includes avoidance of irritants, allergens, and restrictive clothing and use of topical and systemic agents that provide both symptomatic relief and specific treatment of the underlying cause.
