you didnt mention your age... i feel you have recurrent fungal infection...usually recurrent fungal infection happens in obesed persons or having diabetes or immunocompromised...better check your blood sugar levels...instead of taking monistat and vagisil you can try terbinafine 250 mg tablets daily for 15 days and same cream...try to reduce your weight and maintain it..keep the area as dry as possible...and dont use inner wears when at can also use antifungal soaps for bathing...
dont worry
