It has been one year now, redness and fungus are not going away from the anus area. It is all over. It is on my scrotum, inner part of the thigh just right beside the scrotum. I have been applying Cloben-G and dusting it with Clotrimazole powder, still not going away; instead, it is increasing. I am keeping the area dried and clean and using clean underwear, still no relief. Please suggest any other good medicine.

Your complaints are suggestive of Tinea cruris, a fungal infection of the body folds. It is usually a consequence of excessive sweating and maceration of the skin, tight clothing, and uncontrolled sugar levels.
Cloben G is a steroid cream and is strictly contraindicated for fungal infections. It only makes the infection further resistant. Instead, you would need a two weeks course of oral antifungal.
Kindly upload an image of your current condition to confirm the diagnosis and formulate a necessary treatment plan.
1) Tab Okacet (Cetrizine) 10 mg twice daily after food for relief of itching.Preventive measures:
Stop Cloben-G immediately.Regarding follow up:
