Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day
You seem to be Tinea Cruris which is fungal infection of groin crease. You have already been prescreibed nystatin powder which is anti fungal agent, addition of topical steroid along with anti fungal will help-- try using Candid B Ointment(Clotimazole+Beclomethasone).
Take care
