Brief Answer:
clotrimazole

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX
I saw the photographs.
It is appearing like a fungal infection, Tinea corporis.

You can continue Levocet 5 mg as advised by Dr XXXXXXX but please stop using Tenovate.

It is a strong steroid and can harm you.

Instead of this you can use candid B cream ( clotrimazole + betamethasone).

Use this cream daily in night for 7 days.
This will give you instant relief.

After 7 days apply plain candid cream ( clotrimazole)for another 3 weeks.
This will give you complete cure.

Feel free to ask any other doubts.
