How do I treat a jock itch? Why do genitals itch? Use butt paste and aquaphor?

My 3 year old son has what i think is jock itch . What do I do to treat it. His itchy in his private area and it s red and looks raw. He has had this for about 3 days and I have been treating it with some Butt Paste and Aquaphor. max has had this once before and we went to Dr who tried treating it with anti fungal creams then just Aquaphor and eventually it went away. So today I just asked the pharmacist what he recommend as over the counter anti fungal cream and he had me purchase Lotriman. I applied this evening for the first time along with Butt Paste.

Hello,
Thanks for the query,

He might have developed fungal infection.

The area of groin around is very moist and is prone to develop these infections.

Treatment can be with oral antifungals as well as with topical antifungals.

Various antifungal powders like candid are availabe.

These can help reduce the moisture as well as control the infection.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
