A topical cream: The most effective cream for this itchiness is a rx called lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone). A nother is mycolog both contain an anti fungal drug and a steroid to relieve itching.

Add hydrocortisone: Try to mix 1% Hydrocortisone cream to the miconazole. And mix in 2 times each day to the rash. This is a very effective combination. Rub in one cream and then the other right on top for 30 seconds. It doesn't matter which cream you rub in first.
