You are most likely suffering from fungal infection for which you will need prescription medicines orally. It is good that you are keeping the area dry and clean. So visit a dermatologist for treatment. You will certainly benefit. If you are using creams etc suggested by friends and pharmacists, stop using them.

You are suffering from tinea (fungal infection). Keep the area dry, do not share your towel, bathe daily, wash your clothes daily. DO NOT USE STEROID COMBINATION CREAMS. Kindly consult a dermatologist near you for advice regarding treatment.
