Hopefully its not Herpes
You didn't say what cremes you tried. Here are two guesses: allergy or eczema. Both of those conditions usually itch like crazy.
Any chance there's something new in your environment that you're allergic to, like a new laundry detergent, piece of furniture that you sit on, or something like that? You can try an over-the-counter antihistamine. If that helps, then it's pretty clear you had an allergy.
If you've been having problems for months, I would definitely recommend a referral to a dermatologist; most other doctors are pretty clueless about skin conditions. You can try something like a steroidal ointment or creme, but they can have unpleasant side effects if used for a long time. There are also special cremes for eczema, if that's what you have, but they can also have long-term side effects. There are also other conditions that may cause persistent rashes. It's better to discuss your specific case with a doctor.
hey man i truly appreciate your advice. just wanted to drop a line to say thanks. Peace
