Chronic itching on testicles

Testicles always itching and have this crawling sensation.  Used anti-fungal cream and nothing changed. Using apple cider vinegar and seems the itching has increased. Its been  2months plus now. I have been treated of yeast infection before. Using intimate wash, keeping it dry but no change. No discharge, nothing on the penis just itchy testicles. Help!

Two months is a long time to have itchy testicles.  You are just treating yourself?  Have you seen a doctor.  I know people have avoided going to the doctor, however, that is starting to get better.  They may also guide you over the phone.  Are you sweating a lot?  How's your hygiene these days? No chance you have an std or anything, right?  Fungal infections are common reasons for itching like this.  This gives a whole list of reasons for itchy balls.  https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/319086#seven-causes-of-itchy-balls  Read through that and see if anything looks familiar and then we'll talk.

And if you determine this is jock itch, the antifungal should help and I'd keep at it.  A doctor can walk you through that. Here's an article: https://www.healthline.com/health/jock-itch  You also need to be washing and drying the area.  They also make antifungal powders you might try. Don't wear tight underwear, wear breathable fabric.

thanks for the information. I do sweat a lot especially when I was using the cream. So I have not had any sores or warts, there is nothing visible to the eye generally. However a closer look am seeing very very small rashes between the hair follicles, hard to see but only when you stretch,  and also there is skin flaking.

What about trying a powder? After this long though, I'd see a doctor.  If you are sweating a lot, that will exacerbate it.  Do what you can to change underwear if you've been sweating.  Cotton is best.
