Thank you for asking your question at It is my privilege to help you figure this out.

It is very likely that the rash is being exacerbated by yeast as this is very common. I would recommend trying some monistat cream (or other anti fungal cream) which is available over the counter. If this does not work, see your doctor. The hydrocortisone is a good idea for the itching, but it may not completely get rid of the rash until you treat the cause. the monistat should help with that.
