Itching & flaking in-thigh
Help. I have been having this itching in the fold of my thighs (near to my privates) and when I scratch something like dead skin comes off - this dead skin can occur several times in a day. This problem started when I was pregnant a year ago! I live in a hot climate coastal area. What can it be and how to get rid of it permanently?

It may be sweating which causes excoriation of the area or it could be a fungal infection. You should keep the area dry and you could try an antifungal cream.
