Human scrotum. Diseases that affect it [↑]
The scrotum is not only the skin of the sheath of the testicles, but the whole of the seven layers that envelop them.
Function of the scrotum
The main function of the testicles is the production of sperm for fertilization and therefore should be kept at an ideal temperature that is 3.6 Fahrenheit degrees lower than the body temperature.
The function of the scrotum is to protect the testicles and their excretory pathways and also to maintain the appropriate temperature for sperm maturation.
At the beginning of the gestation process, the testicles are inside the fetus’ abdomen, but after the eighth week of pregnancy they begin to migrate to their definitive position through the inguinal canal.
In this process the testicles drag tissues that will later form the different layers of the scrotum. The process must end before the birth of the baby occurs.
If for any reason the two testicles do not reach their definitive position, the baby will suffer from a disorder called cryptorchidism.
Cryptorchidism should be diagnosed in time because it can cause permanent sterility and testicular tumors.
Scrotum anatomy. Scrotal layers
The outermost layer of the scrotum is the scrotal skin , which is covered by pubic hair and is semi-transparent. It differs from the skin of the rest of the body by its rugged appearance, its sensitivity to temperature changes and a darker color.
The color of the skin of the scrotum depends on the race of each individual.
The second layer of the scrotum is thedarts . This layer is a tissue formed by smooth muscle fibers, conjunction fibers and elastic fibers. The darts separates the testicles and forms the suspensory ligament of the penis.
Darts contract involuntarily in response to low temperatures and emotions. Its main function is to move the testicles away or closer to the body to maintain its ideal temperature depending on the external temperature and body temperature.
The third layer of the scrotum is the subcutaneous cellular layer . This is a thin layer containing the blood vessels and superficial nerves of the scrotal region.
This third layer is followed by the external spermatic fascia (fourth layer). This fourth layer is thin and fragile and it has a fibrous cellular structure.
The fifth layer of the scrotum is a muscle; its name is cremaster muscle and its function is to suspend the testicles to the abdomen approximately. When the outside temperature is very low, the testicles go up and become more collected and wrinkled to maintain their adequate temperature.
The sixth layer of the scrotum is the internal spermatic fascia that envelops the spermatic cord, epididymis and testicle.
The innermost layer of the scrotum (seventh) is the tunica vaginalis . This layer is composed of two layerss (parietal and visceral) separated by a yellow liquid that has a damping and lubricating function. When this fluid increases its volume above normal limits, the scrotum suffers from a disorder called hydrocele.
Scrotal diseases. Acute scrotum
There are several diseases that affect the scrotum, including disorders that are grouped with the name of the acute scrotum.
Acute scrotum is characterized by sudden pain, swelling, and redness, and it requires urgent medical attention.
The scrotum may also be affected by other diseases such as multiform erythema, contact eczema and herpes.
Herpes on scrotum or herpes on testicles? [↑]
Genital herpes is a recurrent disease of viral origin that manifests in the genitals and nearby areas through a six-stage outbreak. Herpes on the scrotum is genital herpes that manifests on the scrotum.
The main cause of this disease is the herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2), but it can also be caused less frequently by herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1).
Genital herpes outbreak areas on the scrotum and nearby areas are varied: genital herpes only on scrotum, herpes between scrotum and anus, herpes on side of scrotum, herpes between scrotum and thigh, herpes on bottom of scrotum and herpes around scrotum.
Many times we hear about herpes on testicles or genital herpes on testicles instead of herpes on scrotum. This form of expression is not correct because the testicles are the glands that produce sperm and the scrotum is the envelope of the testicles.
Herpes on scrotum symptoms
Herpes is one of the diseases that cause painful ulcers on the scrotum. Ulcers appear in the fourth stage of infection. The initial stage begins with a tingling, itching and burning sensation.
Herpes on scrotum symptoms may be confused with those of other sexually transmitted diseases that also cause ulcers. Among these we have chancroid, lymphogranuloma venereum and syphilis.
Difference between chancroid and herpes on scrotum
Chancroid is a disease caused by the Haemophilus ducreyi bacterium and it is very common in Africa and Southeast Asia. This disease is rare in the United States of America and most of the cases diagnosed were infected by the bacterium abroad.
The first symptoms of chancroid appear after 3-6 days of contagion.
Chancroid on the scrotum begins with small painful lumps that transform into painful ulcers after two to three days. A single ulcer usually appears and its diameter can reach up to two inches.
Herpes begins with itching and burning, the ulcers it produces are smaller and less deep than those caused by chancroid and each ulcer is formed from the junction of several blisters.
Chancroid produces pain in the inguinal glands, while herpes does not.
Lymphogranuloma venereum vs herpes on scrotum
Llymphogranuloma venereum is a sexually transmitted disease caused by the serotypes L1, L2 or L3 of the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis. This disease goes through two stages, if it is not treated and it can cause, among other sequelae, rectal strictures and abscesses and rectal fistulas.
The initial symptoms of this infection occur within 3 to 12 days after contagion with the bacterium and are manifested by a painless blister. Then this blister becomes an ulcer which heals very quickly to the point that can go unnoticed by the patient.
These first symptoms are different from the symptoms of herpes on the scrotum in that it with itching, tingling and burning.
Syphilis vs herpes on scrotum
Syphilis is also a sexually transmitted disease; it is caused by the bacterium Treponema palliduma and goes through four stages in its development, if it is not treated.
The first symptoms of syphilis appear after two to three weeks after infection with the bacterium that causes it. These symptoms are manifested by an ulcer (chancre) on the area of the primary infection that is most often the mouth, anus, or penis, although it may also appear on the scrotum.
The ulcer produced by syphilis is not painful; it has a hard base, a well-defined edge and disappears on its own.
Sores caused by herpes are painful and are covered by a crust to heal.

|Lymphogranuloma venereum||Chlamydia trachomatis bacterium||It starts with a non-painful blister which becomes a rapidly healing ulcer.|
|Syphilis||Treponema pallidum bacterium||It starts with a non-painful ulcer with a well-defined border that disappears without applying treatment.|
Can you get herpes on your scrotum?
The herpes virus is very contagious. This virus is present in the blisters and sores of people suffering from an outbreak. If one of these people has sex with a healthy person, it is likely that the healthy person will get the virus and suffer from herpes.
Although the main cause of herpes on scrotum is herpes simplex virus type 2, this disease can also be caused by herpes simplex virus type 1. This is why the herpes labialis in one person can cause genital herpes in another.
Condom-protected sex does not prevent herpes infection. For this reason, sexual intercourse should be avoided when one of the members of the couple suffers from an outbreak.
Another important step to keep in mind in order to avoid the contagion of another part of the body of the same person who has a herpes outbreak on scrotum is to wash the hands properly after touching the genitals.
There are many people who are seropositive for herpes simplex virus without knowing that they can infect their respective partners.
How common is herpes on scrotum?
Sometimes we think that certain illnesses can only affect other people. Have you ever wondered: can i get herpes on my scrotum?
It may not seem possible to you, but the answer to this question is affirmative even if you are not HIV positive for herpes simplex virus. Remember the virus is transmitted through sexual contact and health statistics show the existence of millions of infected people.
In a study conducted by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2012, it was estimated that approximately 0.4% of the male population was infected with herpes simplex virus type 2. The age group most affected was 15 to 19 years and Africa was the most affected region.
Treatment for herpes on scrotum [↑]
In this section I will discuss about herpes on scrotum treatments. I will begin with treatments based on oral chemical antiviral agents available in pharmacies. Then I’ll discuss the topical treatment and finally I’ll talk about natural remedies.
Treatment for herpes on scrotum using oral antiviral agents
Oral antiviral agents are widely used for the treatment of herpes.
There are eleven antiviral agents that are effective against herpes virus. Of these most commonly used in the treatment of herpes on the scrotum are the systemic antiviral agents: Acyclovir, Famciclovir and Valacyclovir, whose trade names are Zovirax, Valtrex and Famvir, respectively.
It is important that you know that oral antiviral agents do not remove the virus from your body, i.e. they do not guarantee the cure of herpes on the scrotum. Its function is to prevent the reproduction of the virus and therefore to reduce the time of the herpes outbreak and its intensity.
Oral antiviral agents usually have adverse side effects for your health and are contraindicated in certain cases. For this reason you should not take any of these medications without the indication of your doctor.
Although there are several oral antiviral agents, in the treatment of herpes on scrotum, only one of them is used and by medical prescription.
Topical treatment for herpes on scrotum
The scrotum is a delicate region of your body. Any topical treatment you apply to it should be very cautious.
Topical treatment of herpes on the scrotum is done using an antiviral agent. Acyclovir ointment is one of the most effective antiviral agents. The application of this medicine does not kill herpes virus from the body, but it helps to heal the ulcers more quickly.
In addition to the chemical antiviral agents, you can use a natural ointment such as Tea Tree Ointment which I have discussed in my article about the topical genital herpes treatment.
