Dermatologist 's  Response
The history elicited by you does not give any clear clue.
For irritation/itching, I suggest you to use oral antihistaminics.
Candid-B cream does not cause skin cancer, but its long term use can lead to several side effects like skin atrophy, dyspigmnetation, telengiectasia, striae, dryness etc. You should stop using candid-B cream.
Approach a dermatologist and initiate proper treatment.
