How to treat antecubital space rash ?

Hi, I m 34 yr. old female. i have developed a rash on the antecubital spaces. I applied nystatin cream for about 3 days and it kind of went away, but kow its back and much worse. It itches but I dont scratch and it looks really red. Its anoying and embarrasing. I cant remember if my MD told me it s eczema or dermatitis , but she said hydrocortizone would help but I havent bought it. I tarted using ketoconazole cuz that s what I had at home. cherry
