Hi, Thanks for writing to us. From the description it seems you are having fungal infection( tinea). It requires a proper course of oral and topical antifungal like oral terbinafine/ itraconazole given in combination with topical clotrimazole or eberconazole cream. Merely using a topical cream and too off an on will make your infection refractory to treatment. So you need to consult a dermatologist for proper treatment. Also it is advisable to wear loose cotton clothese and avoid sweating and friction for better control of lesions. Hope this helped. Should there be doubt. please write back Take care
