You seem to be applying topical steroids - betmet which gives temporary relief but aggravates the fungal infection. Also the dose of antifungal canditral should be adequate with appropriate duration like 4-6 wks. Addition of another antifungal would be needed. General hygiene measures like bathing twice, thourough ironing of all clothes including underclothes, washing towel daily, would be of great help.

Fungal infection occurs due to poor immunity. To get rid of it we need regular exercise and good nutritious food. Avoid all types of shampoo and soap. If You have Faith in Homeopathy - You can apply: Berberis Aquifolium ointment & Azadirachta Indica ointments twice daily after washing and drying skin with pure plane water. These are good herbal Homeopathic creams for fungal infection for dry skin. (both medicines are also available in liquid Form (Q) for oily skin - Apply 10% of each diluted in RO water or Distilled water after washing and drying with pure plane water) You can Also take some internal medicine for prompt and permanent cure: (1) Tellurium 30  thrice daily for one month. (2) Berberis Aq Q 20 drops twice daily in some water for one month These medicines have no adverse effects if taken under supervision of qualified homeopathic consultant. For more help before & after taking these medicines  you can consult me personally on Lybrate.
