Hi.Superficial Fungal infections have become chronically recurrent and difficult to treat because of incessant use of topical steroids and other OTC medicines.Please stop using creams like Fourderm,Quadriderm,Ringguard,Ring cutter,Betnovate to name a few.For your current condition,take Tablet Itraconazole 200 mg twice daily for 7 days and apply Onabet(Sertaconazole) cream locally twice daily.In addition take Tab Allegra 120 mg at night for the itching.Use an antifungal soap for bathing (e.g. Ketopz containing Ketoconazole).Do this for a week and let me know how you are doing.
