Hello,
I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.
I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.
The most likely cause of night time itch is yeast (fungal) infection. An over the counter cream like Monistat is likely to eradicate the infection. Wearing a cotton underwear and keeping the area dry; would be recommended.
Having said that; if you have history of unsafe sex; you may consider a STD screening for caution.
It is privilege assisting you.
