Can Candid lotion be applied for excessive sweating in groin area?

I have had skin problem over last 10 years. The overall skin all over is okay now. However fungal problem has appeared on the under side of scrutum , while scales have come up on buttocks, and rash red in colour around inner thighs. My doctor has prescribed candid lotio to be applied twice a day, tablet forlcan 150 mg once a day fo 10 days followed by for an 50mg for another 20 days. This treatment has started only yesterday. Since there is lot of perspiration in that area, I clean it up with cloth frequently. Can I apply for an lotion more than twice a day because of unease.
