Majority of patients (48.2%) were wearing jeans regularly.54% of patients were wearing Jocky type of underwear. Medicated soaps were used by 30% of patients. 23% of patients were using antiseptic liquids for cleaning the area. Deodorant spray was used by More than 21% of patients. 75.6% of patients used combination creams (self medicated). On examinations 63.5% of patients were having erythema of some grade. Thickening of scrotal skin were observed in 60% of cases.Superficial to deep ulceration/erosion were present in 41.2% of patients. Scabies nodules were present in 22.4% of patients. Associated Tinea cruris was observed in 32.9% of patients. However, fungus infection of scrotum was found in 17.6% of cases.17.6 % of cases were having associated bacterial infections. Irritant reactions/contact dermatitis was most common cause of scrotal dermatitis observed in 44.7% of cases, followed by neurodermatitis (LSC) in 30.5% of cases

Scrotal dermatitis is among one of the very common dermatological condition that has been easily overlooked by dermatologists ,treating physicians as well as by patients. The condition is easily mistaken for the common skin disorders affecting the area, like Tinea and scabies. This study will try to find out the various etiological factors and the management of the condition. 85 Male patients between the age group of 15 to 78 years were enrolled in a study period of 8 month. Majority of patients (48.2%) were wearing jeans regularly.54% of patients were wearing Jocky type of underwear. Medicated soaps were used by 30% of patients. 23% of patients were using antiseptic liquids for cleaning the area. Deodorant spray was used by More than 21% of patients. 75.6% of patients used combination creams (self medicated). On examinations 63.5% of patients were having erythema of some grade.
