What causes itching in groin?

I am male, 25yrs. Doctor I am facing consistent itching in the groin. I consulted a doctor some 6 months back he prescribed Onabet B cream. After applying the cream itching get reduced. Now even though I am applying the cream the itching continues. There is no red dots or rashes as in Fungal infection. Groin appears to be normal.Please guide me the medicine. Thanks in advance.
