Hoping it's just dry skin but...

I have had growingly itchy skin under the scrotum area. I thought nothing of it till it became infuriating how itchy it got. I was itching my skin raw. Recently the skin has turned red in some areas and around those areas are what look sort of like a rash on my inner thigh. I did have a girlfriend about 6 months ago that slept around a lot, i didn't know it at the time of course. But now I am wondering if she gave me something? My health insurance isn't doing it's job at the moment so I can't see my doctor. Just wondering if anyone had any ideas? Thanks

Jock itch?  Or it may be a fungal infection.  Really, all you can do is see a doctor, preferably a dermatologist.  Sorry.
