It's a recurrent fungal infection. Maintain good hygiene( daily twice usage of cotton underwear which should be thoroughly washed in warm water and sun dried) topical antifungal creams and antibiotic creams to be used. Topical candid powder which absorbs sweat is beneficial. Oral fluconazole should be used. Cetrizine with montelucast daily at night time for relief of itch. Obesity and diabetes or immunocompromised conditions to be ruled out.

You have to loose weight, wear loose fitting cotton clothes and avoid sweating to prevent relapse. Get Your sugar levels checked.
