Hello, Topical antibiotics (metronidazole cream) and antifungals (clotrimazole cream) or low-potency steroid creams for contact dermatitides often lead to clearing of the lesion. Proper hygiene with frequent washing and drying of the prepuce is an essential preventive measure. Recurrence is common with fungal infection , you must use it 1-2 months even after rash clears.
