The rash you describe can be due to fungal infection and needs to be treated with antifungal ointment or antifungal powder since you describe it as wet . Probably antifungal powder would be more effective .

Also fungus develop more in wet and moist skin .

Hope This helps .

I should mention that on my job, i walk around buildings in security and have to wear a uniform that makes me hot and sweaty at times. This most likely further supports a fungus?


Yes a fungal infection is common if area is constantly moist . Thats why this is a recurrent problem in your case .

You need to wear soft cotton undergarment , and apply antifungal powder liberally .
