Is it safe to use deodorant in groin cause of excessive odor ?

Want to know if its safe to use deodorant in groin because of excessive odor. I m male, 52, shaved as much as possible in that area but it gets an odor within hours after bathing. I deal with jock itch quite a bit an have just finished a 2 week run of desonide which doesn t seem to have cleared up the problem.
