Since when r you having this?What r other symptoms that you r experiencing? By doing what like walking, exertion- itching increases or decreases in intensity. For how much time it remains? It can be because of dermatitis/ eczema or allergy or dryness or fungal infection or psoaiasis etc. I need details of case n preferably pics of affected area. In the meanwhile follow this moisturize frequently. Coconut oil and glycerine are good options. Avoid sudden changes in temperature or humidity. Avoid sweating or overheating. Reduce stress. Avoid scratchy materials, such as wool directly in contact with skin. Avoid harsh soaps, detergents, and solvents. Be aware of any foods that may cause an outbreak and avoid those foods. For this homeopathic treatment is very effective for more details consult online.
It seems your father is suffering from recurrent fungal infection also called Tinea. Photographs would be required to confirm the diagnosis and prescribe appropriate treatment. Till then make sure your father bathes twice a day, changes clothes twice a day, keeps his soap, towels and clothes separately from other family members. Clips his nails, washes his clothes everyday and dries it completely before wearing it and keeps the affected area dry. Also get his blood sugar levels checked.
