Skin itches in the groin area

Hi. Posting this for a 62 y/o lady. Her skin in her groin is itchy and has been like this for 6 months now. No improvements. Anti histamine doesn't work. The itching is constant and there are no signs of rashes or red skin or anything apparent. It is only on the right side. Any ideas?

Thanks
D

It might be a yeast infection. Get her to ask for a powder to treat it with.

Thanks. I got her Canesten (Ketoconazole) cream. Pharmacy told me 3-4 applications per day and after 3 days the itching should be gone but takes 4 months to rid of the yeast. Is that correct?
