does he have excessive moisture and sweating between the thighs? this can lead to a skin fungal infection which can cause itching and skin irritation and odor

He tried over ther counter and doctor prescribes fungus cream
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 3 months ago

he most likely has a groin fungal infection or jock itch fungal skin infection there

there are over the counter antifungal itch powders and sprays he can use 3-4 times a day like Tinactin, or lotramin or prescription Nystatin powder to use on the area 4 times a day for 4-6 weeks which can help clear up skin fungal infection

the key is to keep the area dry and fight the skin fungal infection

and to use the treatment for 1 week after the skin rash disappears.

creams are not good in a moist area

powders are better, like Nystatin powder

Ok he also have bumps on his arms but only where his tattoos are it’s been bothering him for bout a month I’ve used Creams from my doctor and over the counter they stops the itching For a little while but it comes back
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 3 months ago

he has to continue to use the antifungal powders for 4-6 weeks

and use it for 1 week more after the rash goes away

and he has to keep the area dry with baby powder after that to prevent excessive moisture.

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.
