I've had this symptom for quite sometime - for the most part it has been thought of as old fasion "jock itch" (over excessive itching around the inner thighs and on the upper region). So I went to twice a day on showers (during the summer/spring as it was humidity that seemed to be the culprit) and this seemed to have diminished the problem by at least 90%. However, it started creeping back - One thing that I noticed - it was agitated more by intercourse (after). So one day, I decided to shave. Cleaned everything up. This worked. No more itching. Is it possible that my skin has become sensitive to the hair? Now it growing back and the itching is more severe above. Not so much on the inner thighs, just occasionally. I can feel bumps now, much like mosqito bites. very uncomfortable, and can cause embarrasing situations (since the itching has become almost an unconcious habbit). I found numerous entries on the net regarding this (almost) and they have ranged from the "jock itch" to scabbies and STD possibility. due to finances - I dont go to a physician unless its an emergency. Itching (at least now) to me is not an emergency (yet).
thank you for any suggestions
