    sorry about ur plight. what part of ur private part do u have this itch? does it affect the part between the thighs and the scrotum? any rash? A lot of conditions might be responsible for itching in the region u mentioned. more commonly, fungal infections of the perineum esp. tinea cruris present that way. I'll advise u see a physician who will examine ur private part and make a proper diagnosis. When this is done, appropriate medications, topical or oral will be prescribed to u. if its a fungal infection, u may need to apply antifungal creams for a long time.
