History noted. From your statement the skin condition you may be suffering is fungal in origin. For that the antibiotic cream you are using will not be that much helpful. A course of antifungal tablets and topical ointment will be able to give you a better relief. But still my suggestion is to get consulted with a dermatologist in person,get yourself examined and to follow his instructions for a better cure.
Good day.
