Unfortunately : Unfortunately without seeing the lesion and getting more of a history it is difficult to say. If it is itchy then it could be a fungus or a dermatitis/allergy from exposure to an allergen. You could always try an over the counter anti-fungal cream like Clotrimazole twice a day for a few weeks. If that does not work see a doctor. Good luck.
