Is using Onabet B cream on scrotum safe?

Male, 23
Having some pink patches and Red Rashes/Lesions on and around Scrotum and groins since 6 days. First a doctor diagnosed it as Jock itch and prescribed Itaconazole and luliconazole. It wasn't helping much, so three days later, I asked another doctor and she prescribed Ornabet- B along with Candid Powder. It has shown considerable improvement in 3 days. But I am Concerned about Beclomethasone Dipropionate (0.025%w/w) in Onabet-B Cream which is a steroid. I have read somewhere that we should not use such steroid on scrotum as it can worsen the situation. What should I do. Should I Switch to Luliconazole again?

If you are having jock itch (Fungal infection) then steroids should not be used. It will take 6 to 8 weeks to settle. If not treated adequately, it will recur
