Hi,Welcome to HCM,
It is possible that you might have got fungal infection or bacterial infection due to severe itching.
Clean the part with Betadine lotion and apply triple action cream.
Take one antibiotic medicine course.
take some anti histamine like Cetrizine as and when required.
For fungal infection you may take oral antifungal tablet like Flucanozole 150 mg once in a week for 4 weeks.
Ok and bye.
