Dr. Joram Seggev

Various causes: Itching in the pubic area may be due to heat and sweating; fungal infection if there are skin folds; contact allergy to certain chemicals in underwear, particularly made of synthetic materials; lice transmitted by sexual contact or sleeping on an infested mattress. As the causes are so different, you better see your physician.

Many possible: causes. These lesions need to be visualized & a history needs to be obtained in order to make an accurate diagnosis. Sometimes lab testing or biopsy is necessary.
