    This is not specifically a urology issue, it's a dermatology issue. Treat your skin in your groin area with the same care you would any other part of your skin.

    If you think it is a skin infection (yeast infection, fungus, jock itch) and not just dryness, there are many over-the-counter products to try from powder to creams. Do not use antibiotic ointments on your genitals.

    DO NOT SCRATCH!

    Absolutely see a dermatologist. There is NO excuse for allowing a health issue to persist for years. Long-term skin irritations can turn into scars and can lead to permanent skin damage.
