hello
There are topical medicines over the counter but they often do not work well
A prescription straight anti fungal is better in this area.
Sometimes an oral antibiotic.

chlotrimazol is a typical OTC cream.

Many people use tea tree oil but the success is very limited...keeps it down but does not get rid of it.

The Cadillac of treatment is you have a doctor do a swab and send it to the lab and pick an anti-fungal medication that fist the lab testing.

good luck
