Itching in groin, developed small rash. No help with itch sprays, tea tree oil, coconut oil. Suggestions?

I recently had an itch one night in my upper groin area, I scratched it and then developed a small rash on the inside of my leg, and an annoying chaffage on my right side of my scrotum . There is a very small patch of skin that continues to rub against my leg and my scrotum seems to be very tight. I have gone to 3 doctors and a dermatologist about it, but no help. It is not an STD , the only thing I did that was out of the ordinary, is i rode the exercise bike at the gym and then played basketball, and that night is when it started. I am wondering if I could have adjusted myself after being slightly chaffed on the bike, and that has caused this. I have tried every jock itch spray and cream with no help at all. my body odor has been different as well. A much different smell from my stool and often times it has been black. I have cut all wheat out of my diet and used tea tree oil on the spot as well. the tea tree oil really irritated my scrotum and after using it I removed a layer of dead skin from any part of my scrotum that the tea tree oil touched... This has been going on for over a month. Coconut oil has seemed to help a bit, but the chaffing is still there, and my scrotum seems to be tighter in areas (i m assuming because of the dead skin) I went to a dermatologist and he said he didnt see anything, but took a culture. Please help me, I am miserable every day trying to deal with this.

Thanks for writing in.
It seems like an intertrigo that might have developed secondary infection.
To treat the same
Wear loose cotton clothes
Avoid inner garments at night to allow air flow to the area.
Also use a combination cream of clotrimazole and hydrocortisone such as HYDROZOLE cream twice daily.
Keep the area dry and clean as much as possible.
Hope that answers your query.
