About a week ago my skin under my arms and genitals became red, irritated, and extremely itchy.

I read that this can occur in HIV patients due to a low CD4 count, since my CD4 count is constantly rising and falling with a peak of about 600 I was wonder if this is true and what can I do to help it heal. The itch is the first thing I'd love to get to go away but both would be great.
