This is usually due to candida and is exacerbated by water. The best thing is to really keep these areas dry and use a mild deodorant. Try not to use too much cortisone as it will actually weaken your immune response to the fungus and make it worse. Also, you shouldn't use the steroid cream too much or where there are creases as it will break down the skin.
