Welcome to Healthcaremagic forum,

To give you the right picture of the problem ,I would like to know the exact location of these itchy lesions .

Is the groins involved here ,or is it just the dorsal aspect of the thighs involved .

If the groins are involved then must be a fungal infection ,and you would require a antifungal tablet or a lotion to get it cured.

If only thighs are involved then could be dry skin or even scabies.
For dry skin you should try lot of moisturizers .
For scabies you have to try permithrine lotion all over the body.

To begin with you can take oral anti histaminic tablet like cetrizine and see the response .

A detail history and a picture of the lesions would help me further to guide you better.

hope this advise helps you .

wish you good health .
