Hi, I am a pretty big hypochondriac about a lot of these things so bare with me. I am not a virgin, but have not been sexually active for about 5 months. About 4 days ago I had a normal itch on my testicles, this itch started to get a little bit more intense by day two. By day two I noticed that my pelvic area would hurt as if it were a muscle pain from straining it. This is possible that I strained it from messing around wrestling with my friends. By day three I went to the bathroom and noticed that along the bottom side of my shaft and some of my testicles there was dried up white flaky skin. I wet it and it went away just as if it was an ashy knee or elbow. It seems to have come back but definitely a lot less. I also was treated at a younger age with surgery for my condition of Hypospadia. I have scar tissue around some of my penis from the surgery, and due to my hypochondria I tend to freak out about it confusing it for bumps. Please help me!
This would be difficult to interpret without an examination. I would suggest that you see your pediatrician or family doctor for an evaluation. I'm sorry that I can's answer your questions.
