Hello there...I can understand your concern. Yes it is better you consult a dermatologist, that is, skin specialist. Itching between the thighs will usually be due to tinea cruris. But it is important to rule out other diseases like scabies, intertrigo. So kindly consult a dermatologist for further evaluation. Avoid using creams in your especially steroids as they can cause atrophy and exacerbate any infection.
