Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You could be having fungal infection or eczema which then gets infected after scratching. You may apply soothing Lactocalamine lotion to relieve the itch. Take Cetrizine tablet before sleeping as well to relieve the itching. Show it to your Dermatologist and get proper management for your condition. Avoid sweat accumulation, prolonged sitting in same position, take bath regularly and avoid sun exposure.
