In brief: Intertrigo

"Fungal" unlikely.
No harm from ketoconazole, might help. Ventilation and cool water rinses are useful. If it persists see a dermatologist. Meanwhile you can try OTC hydrocortisone.

In brief: Treatment review

In general such problems require keep area clean and dry, gp should take samples to confirm its a fungal infection (which is less common than bacterial).
Treatment needs to be changed accordingly.
