Brief Answer:
Antihistamine will help.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, it seems that you might be having dermatitis.
Antihistamine like Fexofenadine 180 mg once a day will help in relieving itching.
Local application of skin cream containing steroid like betamethasone and antifungal medication like miconazole along with an antibiotic like gentamycin can be helpful.
Any medication should be taken only after clinical examination by a Dermatologist.

Keep the area clean and dry.

I hope this is helpful to you.
If you have any further query, I will be happy to help.
Regards. Thanks.
