Need to be seen: This color change in your skin can only be diagnosed based on its exact location and appearance. You need someone to look at it in person.

Not Sure: Hard to say what could be going on from your description. Things like excema, or psoriasis can cause skin redness and itchiness, although they don't usually cause pain. Other types of skin problems from allergic reactions to scabies could cause itchiness. If topical Hydrocortisone doesn't help get it checked out by your doctor.
