I’ve been having this problem for about 6 months now, the area underneath my testicles has become very itchy and the skin has become very tight and leathery looking. Certain times during the day it becomes very sweaty and itchy.

Response to sweaty crotch: hyperhydrosis maybe...
I may have something to help, it sounds like you might have a condition called Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating. I made a device for men and women that wraps around the crotch of you underwear to absorb sweat. Once the Wrapp becomes wet from sweat, take it off and put on a clean dry Wrapp. I sell them on Etsy.com. Search under Hyperhidrosis and my Wrapp will come up. The Wrapp works for men, (briefs of course,) and women. Made of 100% cotton, muslin and terry cloth and can be rewashed hundreds of times. A bakers dozen includes a nice carrying case that is also washable. I have had no eruptions for almost a year now and it is so nice to be dry. Also, do not use talcum powder. On the Moh's scale, that rates a diamond 10 on the hardness scale, talc is rated 1. Talc is a rock and has no benefit on the skin at all. Talc can make it worse. What you need is to keep this area dry. Also, what you might want try is before you step out of the shower, shower the crotch area of with cooler water for a minute or so, this really helps to cool the area down before getting out of the shower and makes it easier to dry off.

I suggest you ask your Dr. There is a very rare form of skin cancer that has these same symptoms. Even consult an endocrinologist, it is very rare. It is called Paget's disease. If this is it, it will spread to the skin on the insides of your thighs.
