What is the remedy for sweet itching at night?
Q: I have been getting a lot of itching on my testicles for the last one month. This always occurs at night or early in the morning. It is a sweet itch. Is there any natural remedy for this? What could be the cause for this? Is it because new skin is forming?
A:Your sweet itching problem is quite a common disorder, which most males do not reveal. It is felt in the late hours of the night and during the early hours of the morning because that is the time you perceive it against the busy working time of the rest of the day. I think what you have is due to drying of the skin. I suggest that you avoid using too much of soap. Use only cold water for bathing. Apply a good moisturizer. Liquid paraffin is a very economical and effective external medication.
