How Can Skin Rash Be Treated?

I have a rash on my inner thighs near my vagina. It is also on my vagina and my anus. I have treated it for thrush and used various nappy rash creams but it is still itchy. I have also just had hand foot and mouth disease but had this rash before I got hfmd.

Hello,
Thank you for posting on HCM.
It seems you are suffering from Tinea cruris and corporis, a kind of fungal infection.
I would suggest you to consult your dermatologist for proper management of the condition.
I usually recommend proper course of oral anti-fungal drugs like Fluconazole or Itraconazole along with anti-fungal cream like luliconazole for local application at bedtime. You can additionally use antifungal dusting powder containing sertaconazole during day time and a soap containing ketoconazole for rinsing of affected areas. Take oral antihistaminics for itching as required.
Maintain hygiene over those areas and avoid wearing tight undergarments.
Hope your queries are resolved and wish you best of health.
