Groin area rash

Over the last few months I have been fighting a very annoying rash around my inner thighs and genital area. Started off as slight discomfort while sitting and walking, turned into a bunch of red spots that developed around inner thigh areas (both at same time), and has turned into red & irritated scrotum (with a normal patch down the middle) and re-occurring development of the red spots on the inner thighs. Steroid creams seem to eliminate the red spots on the thighs, but the discomfort and irritation on the scrotum/and area between the anus and scrotum is always lingering.
Doctors have had me on three or four different types of anti-fungal creams, different steriod creams and it will not end. Any ideas? It takes forever to get into a dermatologist and I’m at the end of my rope with this. Thanks

Check for scabies?

Also, it's probably not this, but get blood tests for herpes, syphillis, and other STDs.

this is not std - your profile name I suppose is a clear indication why you’d think this first. Not itchy - so no likely scabies. No blisters - so not herpes - and it looks nothing like a syphilis rash - which would likely appear on hands or feet anyways and there was never a chancre.
