Welcome to HCM,
From your history it seems that you are having fungal infection in groin.
Apply anti fungal cream like multifungin.
Take oral anti fungal medicine, Flucanozole 150 mg once in a week for 4 weeks.
Keep local part dry, healthy and airy.
You may take Cetrizine as and when require for itching.
Ok and bye.
