Itchy Skin

Hi. I have severe itching on my legs - mostly - and in my groin and thighs for a few weeks now. The legs are blackish near the ankles.

Any reason for this and any treatment? I am currently applying Caladryl as a palliative.

Hi. it could be tinea cruris infection.
Jock itch (tinea cruris) is a fungal infection that affects the skin of your genitals, inner thighs and buttocks. Jock itch causes an itchy, red, often ring-shaped rash in these warm, moist areas of your body.
