    The most usual causes of red itchy patches in the groin are fungal. You should be able to buy Canesten ointment containing 1% Clotrimazole. Use as directed on the packet and this should clear up. If it doesnt seem to be clearing after 2 weeks use you could try Daktarin cream which is also for fungal infections on the skin. It may also help to wash the area with a dandruff shampoo that contains selenium sulphide as its active ingredient. Rub a little into the area, wait 2 minutes then wash off thoroughly. Then use the cream. Do this daily before bed.

    If nothing seems to help then you may need to see your doctor for a further evaluation.
