Mohiba K Tareen, MD responded:
There is no cure, for swimmers itch, only treatment for the itching. The clotrimazole part of the cream would not be beneficial, but the bethamethasone would be. Try is on a small aspect of the rash and see if it is soothing first. Also, antihistamines should help.

I hope that helps
