severe itching

This is so embarassing...for the past 15+ months I have had severe itching on and around my pubic hair area and always on the right side, this first started with itching at the top of my buttock crack and arse checks.  my genitals do not itch. I went to the Dr. she found nothing. It went away for a bout a week and reappeared..  The area gets dry and scaly sometimes, at times the itch can become unbearable..  I use hydrocortisone cream which helps sooth the itching but it always comes back. I do not have a urinary tract infection, no std's, Gosh I need help...my regular doctor has not been much help at all.  It seems to get worse when I sweat or get really hot..Please if anyone else knows what this could be or has had the problem themselves please let me know..

You may want to go to a Dermatologist, you may have eczema or psoriasis.  I found out I have eczema after having dry itchy patches on right arm, where it bends.  I also get it on my upper inner left thigh.  The Dermatologist prescribed Triamcinolone cream which works wonders.  It's a stronger steroid cream. After 3 days of use the skin is back to normal.  The ithing usually stops the day of the first application.  I hope this helps and hope you find help for your concern.
