Scratching

My husband keeps on scratching at his genitals, he says it itches. Apparently it is worse when it is hot/humid. What could be the cause and what can we do about it. He has no allergies that we are aware of.
Thank you

Dear Katie
If there is a bit of a red rash he may have jock itch which is a fungal infection - it is something quite common in summer months. He can try something like Lamisil cream. See
