Its usually fungal . If Lotrimin isnt helping alone, you will require prescription antifungal cream which are usually more effective e,g econazole or oxiconazole .

Other measures that will help with itch relief are using antihistamine like benadryl, avoiding itching as it triggers release of more itch mediators in our body.

Applying OTC available bond powder is also very helpful.
