In brief: Anti-yeast cream

Yeast in the naval area = ringworm.
..But make sure you have the correct diagnosis. Topical antifungal creams are often adquate, but severe cases may require oral medication. Keep areas clean and dry to minimize recurrence..

Dry those areas with a hair dryer after showers or baths - this will speed cure while using meds noted above. Then continue to dry with a hair dryer from then on, and recurrences will be far reduced.
