It could still be a fungal infection even though otc creams didn't work - that's why there are prescription meds.

In brief: This

This is unlikely shingles since the rash itself has lasted months.
Perhaps it is a fungal infection or folliculitis or eczema or psoriasis? I would recommend you see a dermatologist and get an accurate diagnosis so you can start good treatment to help your symptoms. It is quite common to have these conditions in that location. I hope that helps a little.

In brief: Not shingles

Could be psoriasis or intertrigo or seborrheic dermatitis or other problem. Best to see a dermatologist.
