Itchy groin, started around anus, tiny fissures on penis. Applying creams. Treatment?

My husband has had an itchy/dry groin for quite some time it really becoming frustrated by it. It started around his anus, but has spread to his groin. I looked at it the other day and it just looked dry, he has been putting Vanicream on the area to hydrate for 2 days and just now we noticed tiny fissures on his penis. He has been to the doctor and has gotten hydrocortizone creams, and sepositories. These do not help. He has used an anit fungal cream, which did not help, and taken medicine for certain type of parasite, which didi not help. Any ideas?

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. There are many reason for itchiness in the groin area. One of the most important reason is poor hygiene. I hope you keep the area clean on a regular basis. The other reasons are parasitic infections if you are having itchiness around your anus and you might need to see a doctor to get yourself examined and tested. I also believe that you will get medication for symptomatic relief from the itching sensation. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day!
