In brief: Hard to know?

You may have a fungal infection.
U say, not having sex? Masturbation? You could be causing release of histamine if masturbating and causing itch. Allergic to underwear (synthetics), or to any soaps, lotions, lubricants, others? If concerned and continuous, get seen by pcp or dermatologist or urologist. Could be very minor or very major. Don't put "willie" in harms way. Get checked out!
