so doctor plz give me a perfect suggestion and remedy for this itchyness
From the symptoms it looks like jock itch. Keep the area dry, wear loose fitting clothes, and change undergarments at least twice a day. For fungal infection many treatment options are there like Clotrimazole 1%, Miconazole nitrate 2%, Tolnaftate 1% and Butenafine hydrochloride 1%. Many OTC products containing these salts are available, your pharmacist can help. Try a combination of two and apply until the itch disappears. Continue application for 2 weeks after the itch disappears.
Please take a second opinion from a dermatologist if the symptoms persist. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
