John:

An itchy spot on the scrotum is usually eczema.  Perhpas the cream you're using is OTC and too weak.  Maybe you're defeating it by scratching.  Why not see a doctor, get a definitve diagnosis and treatment?

Meanwhile, apply 1% hydrocortisone several times a day, moisturize at least twice with vaseline, and never scratch.  If that doesn't work in 10 days, see a physician.

Best.
