Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Itchiness can be due to the drying of the area irritating the nerves.

Infection is another possibility.

Fungal infection can cause itchiness.

Hence you can try over the counter Clotrimazole and hydrocortisone cream together for the symptoms.

Naturally you can try Honey and turmeric paste daily due to its anti inflammatory properties.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
