Hi,

You said you have itching on penis and thighs areas. Most probably you may be having fungal infection. It may be candidal intertrigo and candidal balanoposthitis. It is caused by fungus called Candida albicans. I think, it may be due to perspiration or excessive soap bath. You should consult dermatologist and to have firm diagnosis. Blood tests may be suggested to rule out DM,HIV,anaemia and other internal diseases. If you have obesity, please take steps to reduce body weight.

Antihistaminics like levocetirizine and antifungal like ketoconazole may be taken. Apply antifungal cream like clotrimazole cream. Have Sitz bath in water mixed with dettol.

I hope this would be helpful to you.

Thanks.
