Detailed Answer:
Hi, Dr Purushottam Neurgaonkar here. I welcome you to HCM VIRTUAL CLINIC. I have gone through your question, and I think I have understood your concern. I will suggest you the best possible treatment options.

1 ) First of all do not panic.

2 ) I could not find details of the cream that you have used.

3 ) I will suggest you to take care of private parts by keeping the area clean and dry. Use medicated vaginal wash daily during the bath.

Please seek prescription for antifungal medication for oral use and vaginal tablets. Of course you can use antifungal ointment on the skin of private parts.

4 ) I will suggest to use condom while having sex so as to prevent contact spread of fungal infection. Also, keep inner wears dry. Keep changing the inner clothing's if it gets moist due to sweating or vaginal secretion.

I hope this answer helps you.
Thanks.
