GROIN (GROWING) ITCH: If you mean "groin" itch, it's the itch between the legs. It can be due to many things. It could be a yeast infection (if you are a woman), it could be a fungous infection (if you are a man.) it can be due to soaps & detergents. Do see your doctor. There is no way of making a diagnosis without actually seeing your problem.
