In brief: Spray at Drug Store

Your doc can give you an anti-fungal.
Alternatively, you can try an over the counter spray/cream/powder from the drug store. One is called tinactin (tolnaftate). Fungi love dark and damp places so try to keep things dry and change underwear daily. Peace and good health.

In brief: Creams/Powders

There are many creams and powders to choose from. In general, keeping the area dry will help.
Have a dermatologist look at it to see if is just irritation (needing steroid creams) or has a fungal component (needing antifungal creams/powders) other skin conditions can mimic "jock itch" including psoriasis, other. Good luck.
