Fungal: Skin lightening and itching may be due to a variety of reasons, some of the most common being fungal infections and eczema. Trying an OTC anti-fungal or steroid may help relieve these symptoms, lacking any other information. If the symptoms persist or get worse, please see a doctor promptly.
