Brief Answer:
Keep the area dry

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Actually, moisture causes the skin breaking and bleeding.
I'd suggest you keep the area dry as much as possible.

Moisture helps the growth of fungus adding more to the problem.
You can use Clotrimazole dusting powder after enough drying post bath twice a day.

Try not wearing inner garments during sleep.

Hope this helps.
Feel free to ask further.
Regards

Is using the prescribed powder is enough or do I have to apply any cream as I have even itches. Where can I get the Clotrimazole powder? Will it be given without doctor's prescription?

Hi

Clotrimazole powder available without prescription from any pharmacy.
I suggest to take anti itch medicines like cetrizine to help better.
