I have a rash in my crotch area that will not go away. So far I have showered daily with Safeguard and applied Desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) and Gold Bond powder. ?

In brief: Treat For Fungus

You may have a fungal skin infection called Tinea Cruris, aka Jock Itch.
Warm/moist conditions in this area allow for fungal growth. Recommend good hygiene, bathing once or twice daily; thorough drying of area (hair dryer heat if needed). Over-the-counter anti-fungal cream (Lotrimin, Tinactin, (tolnaftate) Monistat) twice daily is needed to clear infection. See a doctor if not responding after 2-3 weeks of use
