hello there.
the groin infection is a fungal issue.
so you should never use steroid because it will just amplify your problems.
and more over, you should never use any cream which contains steroids without a dermatologist's consult.
and not more than a prescribed duration or else the results could be bad.
and since its a fungal thing, the treatment would be antifungals.
for a prescription, visit a dermatologist.
there are many creams available which have a combination of antifungals, steroids, antibiotic you should never use that.
regards
