Thanks for writing.
Itching in that area is most commonly due to fungal infection. Kindly request him to see a doctor, get physically examined and if so there are topical ointments for the same.
If there is no fungus and if the area is clean, some people do it just as a habit and it just requires attention not to do it.
Hope I answered your query, kindly get back for doubts if any.., otherwise pls accept my answer.
