mysterious itch

So I've had this odd itch just behind my testicles near my anus for a long time. There's no sign of scaly or flaky skin or a rash, its just slightly red from my itching. Nothing really sets off the itch: it only itches a random number of times a day, at any time. I know for certain that I always itch it when im sleeping though. The itch itself isnt extreme, but its very distracting, and takes a long time for it to go away on its own, if it at all. When I do itch it though, it feels like I end up itching it TOO much, because itching it is relieving to an immense extent. The itch is usually gone for a long time after itching it.

I've tried using hydrocortizone, but to no avail. I heard that it possibly might be a fungus, but I have really no idea at all. If anyone has any ideas or help at all, that'd be great. Thanks.

Re: mysterious itch

Could it be related to tight clothing rubbing or even your Laundry Detergent.
If not then it could well be a Fungal condition.
You can buy a Anti Fungal cream from your Chemist ask your Pharmacist, you don't need to say where the itch is.
If this doesn't work then your next call should be your Dr who will know what to give you.
