Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good Day
You probably have Tinea cruris, a genital fungal infection. You need to keep proper hygiene in that area. Change underwear everyday. Don't wear tight underwear. Avoid sweat accumulation in that area, keep it dry and airy. Show to the Dermatologist for proper treatment only after he/she examines properly and then gives correct medication.

Hello rahul;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
You are probably having a fungal infection so do not ignore the itching.To get relief you can apply ointment locally called Lobate-GM externally and see in 2 days you should get relief.If no relief or itching continues then consult a doctor as you may then require oral medicines along with the ointment.

Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

Rahul ,if you are having itching over the genital and it is more in the night ,then it is not a fungal infection ,instead it is SCABIES .Scabies causes more itching in night time only and it effects genitals( esp penis ,as you have mentioned). Fungal infection causes itching through out the day and it effects mainly the groins .If it is so ,then kindly reply me ,so that I can suggest you a remedy.
