Hi Tisha
try scheriproct ointment, cut down on caffeien and other stimulants, use soft white toilet paper only, wash only with white dove soap or UEA in the area. Use cotton underwear and put a bit of antiseptic powder in the fold before going to bed. If all else fails it may be worthwhile to see a dermatologist.
