Genital Dysaesthesia

Genital dysaesthesia typically occurs in adults aged 60 and over and isn't due to infections. It describes the sensation a person with epididymitis may feel. For example, they could experience a burning sensation, irritation, heat or increased sensitivity to the touch of the penis, scrotum or foreskin.

Genital dysaesthesia is associated with vascular hyper-reactivity and redness in the scrotum. This may be linked to a skin condition called rosacea.2‘Male Genital Dysaesthesia.’ Male Genital Dysaesthesia | DermNet NZ, dermnetnz.org/topics/male-genital-dysaesthesia/ The common disorder causes facial flushing, leading to prolonged and sometimes embarrassing facial redness.
