Androgel scrotum

Common Questions and Answers about Androgel scrotum


There are always warning to not put androgel on the penis or scrotum. What is the reason for this warning and what would it cause.
Other symptoms have included, extreme sensitivity in my testicles, burning/itching near the tip of my penis, and some groin pain. I have seen numerous urologists and had many tests. Scrotum ultrasound, testosterone tests, lower GI, and several prostate tests. All tests came back negative, although my testosterone tests were considered low. I had been put on Androgel with absolutely no effect and viagra also with no effect. At this point I dont know where to turn for direction.
The urologist I saw a month ago gave me Androgel 5mg packets to use once a day bc my T-level was only 356. Low-Normal range but still low for a 21 year old right? My mood has improved substantially since (I don't get depressed/irritable much anymore). However, my penis is still small flaccid, my libido is still low, no morning wood, etc. (all the above symptoms are still occuring). For this reason I thought the diagnosis must have been wrong.

The pain quickly spread to my scrotum and testes. Fearing that I had testicular torsion the urology team performed a procedure where they attached the testicles to my scrotum. They also repaired the hydrocele. They found no evidence of torsion. This was the first of my flare ups. These flare ups have continued to the present day (September 8th 2007) on an intermittent basis but almost always starting on right groin and radiating downwards.
The family doctor at the time suggested that daily manipulation of the testicle might result in the testicle descending into the scrotum, which it did. If it would not have come down before the age of 14 he would have ended up performing an orchiopexy. After I lost my left testicle due to the mentioned complications, my ED problems became worse. The urologist who treated me in the sexual health clinic had a blood test done to determine testosterone levels.
For two years he was on Percocet. He finally went to a doctor who injected Novocain into the epididymis and scrotum. He has no pain today. I’m experiencing the same thing and after a short run on antibiotic, ultrasound and examination by the urologist I’m going to go and have the same procedure done.
