itchy rash

I've been struggling with a red itchy rash under both underarms and my inner elbow for 9 months now.  I use an clear and free detergent, mild soap, all natural deodorant etc.  My doctor put me on a steroid oral medication and it took it away for about 3 weeks, but then it returned with a vengeance.  I have been back several times and even went to the dermatologist and he prescribed a steroid cream.  I use it consistently but when I stop, within a few days its back.  Its a deep itch that continues if I scratch it.  Any thoughts or ideas?  I'm just tired of living on steroid cream, which isn't good for my skin.  Please Help!
