Detailed Answer:
HI

I understand your concern regarding your skin problem and I hope I am able to help you in the same.
Since you have a fungal rash over the groin region ,you might need regular treatment with topical antifungal Agents .
You can surely use clotrimazole over the affected areas but remember to apply it twice daily .
Use it regularly for atLeast two weeks for complete cure and to pevent any recurrences.
