Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

I went through your description. I suggest you not to worry much. The itching could possibly due to dryness or fungal infection. But my advice is not to have self diagnosis or self medication. Both of these can be dangerous. Doctors treat disease conditions symptomatically as well as from their experience. Let them do their job. Please visit a skin specialist soon.

You might need psychological counseling., I am more than happy to provide telephone psychological counseling through healthcaremagic. Contact me through customer care,

Hope this answers your query. Available for further clarifications.
Good luck.
