Please stop the ointment prescribed and consult dermatologist at the earliest. Till then , you may apply any moisturiser for comfort. It could be scrotal dermatitis. You may have suffered from fungal infection of the area earlier too. You need full evaluation and proper treatment. Kindly do not use any steroid creams unless prescribed. The skin can become addicted to it. A dermatologist will guide you regarding correct usage of steroid creams- if needed.
