Welcome to the forum.
For the general itching, the tablets mentioned should be of help. If not, a skin specialist help is needed.
For the penile problem, it is most probably bacterial/ fungal infection.
Hence you need an ointment that can act against both of them.
In addition, oral antibiotics may also be needed.
These can be done only after getting examined.
Best regards
