Brief Answer:
Use newer cream

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

I have studied your case.

Your bacteria/fungi may be resistant to medication you are using. I will advise
DAKTARIN Cream [Miconazole nitrate], twice a day application.
Keep groin clean and use calamine lotion if severe irritation.
If there is persistent itching then you can take tab cetrizine 5 mg in night.
If symptoms persist then consult doctor again.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Wishing you good health.

Take care.
