Hello, Increased itching on these sites at night indicates an infection called scabies. However for correct diagnosis & treatment please schedule an appointment with a dermatologist soon because if it is scabies then there is a risk of it spreading to other people who are in close contact. Avoid over the counter topical creams. Warm regards,Dr Pinanky Jadhav, Eternis Clinic Pune
