Hello,
Are you having itching on other parts of body? Does any family member suffering from itching? Itchy boils over scrotum usually occurs in nodular scabies.
If so apply permethrine cream over all body parts except for face, take cetirizine once at night and apply a steroid cream for two weeks over the lesions.  If no such history consult a dermatologist.
