This is a yeast infection otherwise known as intertrigo. What you are applying to it is an antibacterial product so it will not work. Clotrimazole will work, twice a day for at least 10 days. Also Nystatin powder four times a day. You can buy many products that are for "jock itch" over the counter, all work well for this area also.
