Question: Lump on scrotum

 cbmom - Tue Dec 20, 2005 4:21 pm

My 7 year old son just mentioned to me that he has an itchy red lump on his sac area. It is red and he has two bumps. We have no insurance, so I need to know if this is something to worry about, or will it go away on it's own. He said that it has been there for awhile, but with him that could mean several days.

I am not a nurse or a doctor, but my son recently had something similar. It turned out to be a yeast infection. His also consisted of a couple bumps which were itchy. I treated it with Nystatin cream which is prescription, but was also told that any antifungal cream would work (check with the pharmasist). Again, I am NOT a doctor, just giving my experience.

Thank you. I will try it. He said that there were three places, but one went away. He also got them apparently around the time he had an allergic reaction to hay, so I'm thinking maybe it has something to do with that.
