Itchy skin under pubic hair

There's nothing visible on the skin (no rash, redness, or anything). It looks totally normal, yet it itches consistently. I haven't shaved or trimmed either. No idea what's wrong.

From the symptoms it can be dry skin or xerosis, contact dermatitis or sweat dermatitis. As far as the treatment goes, you can apply an anti-itch cream or lotion to the affected area. Oral antihistamine, such as Benadryl can be taken. You should take a comfortably cool bath and wear smooth-textured cotton clothing and also choose mild soaps without dyes or perfumes and use a mild, unscented laundry detergent when washing clothes, towels and bedding. Application of calamine lotion helps in soothing the skin.

If the symptoms persist then please consult  a dermatologist. I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing. Kind regards.
