This is Dr. David

you could have a skin fungal infection on your backside causing itching

if you are scratching all over, you can be spreading this fungal infection to under your arms and behind your knees

you should see your GP doctor and get a prescription antifungal powder and antifungal cream to see if that helps.

it sounds like you are just using moisturizing creams now

you can also try over the counter antifungal creams like clotrimazole

do you have a doctor you can see who can look at your skin?

yes, fungal skin infections can cause red and bumpy skin

skin fungal infections are more common in the summer time.

you can also try 1% hydrocortisone cream which is over the counter to decrease itchiness.
