I haven't gone to the doctor because quite honestly, I don't want to have to tell my nosy parents why I'm going. And as pathetic as this sounds my mom is the kind of person who will jump straight to the conclusion that it's an STD and tell everyone in the family.

Here are some pictures:

Details:
I am 18, I have had unprotected sex, this is not an allergic reaction, I have had this for about 4 months, it started off just me scratching besides my nuts then eventually is started to slowly turn red. When I stopped scratching it, it went away. Then I continued to scratch in that same spot and it came back. Eventually the itching relief became addicting and if you stop it sorta burns. Feels like ants walking in circles in that spot. I've had poison ivy multiple times and I never scratch it and it goes away within a few days. This on the other hand is extremely addicting. I have to scratch it. It's limited to this area of my body as well.

Please tell me what it could be. I can't really visit a doctor because of this family situation at the moment. I will in the future though so please don't tell me the generic uneducated "It's probably an STD, go see your doctor." Because that would be highly retarded of you. I wouldn't be asking people questions on a forum if I had immediate access to a doctor.
