Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


I've noticed white spots on my testicles near the inner thigh. They burn when I sweat. What could be causing this?

Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


It sounds like you might be experiencing a condition known as jock itch, which is a fungal infection commonly found in the groin and inner thigh area. This condition can lead to symptoms such as itching, burning, redness, and the appearance of white spots or a rash. However, it's important to consider other possibilities as well, such as Fordyce spots or even a sexually transmitted infection. Without a physical examination, it's difficult to determine the exact cause. Therefore, I recommend scheduling an appointment with your local healthcare provider or a dermatologist for a proper diagnosis. In the meantime, it's important to keep the affected area clean and dry, wear loose-fitting underwear made of breathable material like cotton, and avoid scratching to prevent further irritation or infection. Please remember that this advice is general in nature, and specific causes may vary. Always consult with a healthcare professional for personalized guidance.
