what creams have you tried.

that looks like it could be a fungal infection or psoraisis

it could also be a skin MRSA type of resistant bacterial infection

which would need a skin culture to diagnose and strong prescription antibiotic ointments to treat.

do you have a doctor you can see who can do a skin wound culture of that area to check for MRSA or bacterial skin infection?
