What causes itching in scrotum?

Hello. I have been having an issue where my scrotum itches (generally at night) to the point where it keeps me wide awake. I've tried hydrocortisone creams, gold bond cream, among others but the itch was getting unbearable and the skin was getting very red. I just took a zyrtec about 30 mins ago and already I feel a huge difference in relief. Any idea what condition this is?
