Brief Answer:
Antifungals

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the details.
It is looking like fungal infection as it involves mainly the folds of skin.
I treat such cases with topical antifungals like clotrimazole cream in night and clotrimazole powder.
This absorbs excess sweat as well as treat the infection and gives excellent response within a week.
Let me know if you have any other doubt.
Thank you
