I am 23 days post surgery and I have the same problem. I have constantly been using a cream I have tried cortizone 10, neosporin, desitin, A&D Diaper rash creme, and now Benadryl and it seems to work the best.
My daugher is a pharmacy tech and she has given me some wetness barrier they use in nursing homes to keep elderly from lying in urine or getting soaked with urine when wetting themselves. This stuff is called Thick Barrier Moisture Paste that is what the name of it is. It is made by Coloplast. It cost about
15 dollars a tube but it is a big tube. I have used it one day and it seems that the urine caused less irritation than before. I might be using too many creams and maybe I need to be using more powder and a hair dryer to keep thing dry more often. I think I am going to cut back on the creams and use the powder more. Gold Bond makes a good medicated powder and I have just purchased this and I am going to start using that as well.
The worst part of this whole thing to me has been the itching and the irritation of the scrotum.
If you find something that works good for you let me know I will try it also.
