Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You cannot cure with just hydrocortisone. You could be having fungal infection because of increased sweat accumulation and improper hygiene. You need to keep the area dry. Use light cotton clothing only. Avoid sun exposure. Get it examined by a Dermatologist who will be able to examine you and give you the right treatment. Usually Clotrimazole powder applied twice a day along with oral clotrimazole therapy will eradicate infection in 6-8 months.
