Treat a fungal rash: Ketoconazole cream should help with a rash that is caused by fungus, such as athlete's foot, jock itch or ringworm. If the rash isn't caused by fungus, it won't work -so I think you need to send a pic to a doctor here on Health Tap or a doctor in person. Fungus will attack under certain circumstances -like moisture, uncontrolled blood sugars (poor diet), other weaknesses etc, so try to fix those.
