Fungal Infection

Most likely you are suffering from a fungal infection of the skin. It is commonly referred to as Jock Itch. The main culprit is the humid environment created by sweat and folding of the skin. This creates optimal place for fungus to grow. Medical term used is Tinea Cruris. Can be treated with avoiding tight clothes, keeping area dry, and using OTC anti-fungal cream like Lotrimin. GOOD LUCK.

Itchy groin and rashes in places on the scrotum (not that easy to see though), what is this?

"jock itch"

Groin
the most likely cause of this is a fungal infection. The over the counter medications that treat athlete's foot can also eliminate this.

How do I know if I have eczema, psoriasis or dermatitis? I have had itchy, scaley rashes around my nose, chin, buttocks and even groin. Help!

A dermatologist

Rash
Well indeed some of these diseases have overlapping symptoms. I suggest you see a dermatologist and they should be able to guide you and give you a proper dermatologist. If in doubt, a skin biopsy can confirm it, but it is rarely required.

Red, itchy, painful episodes of rash in the boxer shorts area is herpes until proven otherwise. Breakouts may occur during times of physical or mental stress. Treatment can include anti-virals, which may either be taken on an episodic or daily preventive basis. You can get a blood test that tells you whether it's HSV I or HSV II.

Jock Itch?

He could see his physician or dermatologist who can confirm if this is from tinea cruris which is a fungal infection that tends to hit the skin in the groin area and between the legs.

Dr. John T. Chiu answered:

Will scabies cause a itchy, burning red rash in the groin area? Bumps that scab over? Or could this be HSV-2?

Unlikely

Groin
You are more likely to have painful instead of itchy lesions from HSV-2. Scabies can certainly cause itchy bumps at the groin area and will likely spread if not treated. However there are many other potential diagnoses.
