Hi. If you are suffering from extensive fungal infection of skin you will be requiring antifungal tablets also along with creams. Just cream alone will not help. And avoid using creams like fourderm, quadriderm and other creams which contain steroids. These creams temporarily give you relief from itching but in long run they are harmful. Levicetrizine will reduce itching partially. So consult your dermatologist near by for correct dosing of antifungal tablets according to your age, weight and other parameters and take it regularly. Use loose pants, avoid jeans, keep area dry, don't share towels. Take care.
