Hi itchy skin even in the scalp rules out scabies.i think it is tinea cruris with id reaction as the rash appeared from grion region.the lesion in the grion if treated cures the itching all over body.use of atarax 25 mg at night.terbinafine 250mg daily once and application of terbinafine ointment can cure the condition.
