Have rash on the thigh fold and scrotum for a long time. Have been diagnosed as jock itch. All test done, on medication. What to do?

I have had a rash on my thigh fold and scrotum for 3 months I've see 2 MD's and was diagnosed with jock itch they tried all the typical mess topical and oral that didn't help.I saw a dermo 1 month ago with the same diagnosis and got another topical. It has knocked it down slightly. It seems that I am constantly sweating under my scrotum,I wear only cotton shorts but with the cold coming that wont last much longer. I don't know what to do anymore I have my follow up dermo appt in 2 days after 30 days. I'm also taking lamatrogine for depression? I'm on disability and can't afford to pay I do need help and can't seem to get it can you help me
