Since you seem to be offline, ill leave a response here which we can discuss later on

Usually itching of this sort can be due to a fungal infection and that can manifest itself with itching in the beginning and later on cause a rash in the region. Usually you can treat this with the help of OTC antihistamines like zyrtec or claritin. These can be helpful in reducing the symptoms. The other thing which you can try is to use OTC calamine lotion which can also help in reducing the itching.

Additionally you can apply OTC clortrimazole cream on the area which will help treat any potential fungal infections like jock itch. You can also use jock itch Lotrimin sprays to help with these symptoms.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
