It's fungus infection...Fungal infection or Ring worm.. when occurs in groin, called as jock itch.. Usually fungal infection is common in moist areas of body like skin folds..It's mostly circular or round in appearance.. May be red or black in colour.. Treatment depending on the type and severity.. Avoid sharing clothes, towels and soap; sweating also increases it..As it has to be differentiated from eczema and infection, its a must to see and confirm the diagnosis for proper treatment..So, please send photos of the affected area by direct online consultation for accurate diagnosis and treatment.

You may be having some type of infection, probably fungal. Itching may also be due to maceration of skin due to sweating. Please maintain good personal hygiene and avoid sharing clothes with others. Keep the area dry as much as possible. Avoid wearing synthetic clothes and jeans and opt for cotton clothes instead. For an accurate diagnosis, photographs are required, so kindly share the same with me via direct online consultation or consult a certified dermatologist near you.
Next Steps
Consult a certified dermatologist.
