hello and wellcome to healthcare magic ,if this itch is spreading in other body parts
then this can be scabies most likely but if it is confined to only one part then this can be some sort of sexually transmitted disease,please contact a sexologist for opinion,take care

Thanks for writing to us.
Constant itching not getting relieved by antifungal ointments might be due to - scabies or eczema or atopic dermatitis or there is severe fungal infection that needs systemic antifungal drugs for cure. You need to see your dermatologist for proper examination and diagnosis.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
