Foul smelling substance accumulating in crotch, recovering from ringworm infection. What should I be doing differently?

I have a foul-smelling substance accumulating in my crotch between my legs and my scrotum . I m just getting over a severe ringworm infection there. I ve been using an anti- fungal ointment for about 6 weeks now. The itching has been persistant, though I scrub myself thouroughly with anti-bacterial soap, often scrubbing myself raw. Often before I m even finished drying off the furious itching will begin again. I ve started scrubbing with soap and a toothbrush but the itching and the smell always return. What should I be doing differently?

Hi foul smelling from the grion area after fungal infection indicates that fungal infection is still present..hence treat the condition with atarax 25 mg at night.terbinafine 250 mg daily once for 14 days and application of sebifin ointment twice daily and use of ketoconazole soap for bath
