Red bumps spread and turn into itchy scaly patches, diagnosed to be fungal infection. Right diagnosis?

I have these red bumps that spread and turn into itchy scaly patches of skin. The spots just get bigger and bigger and I m mixed so the area turns lighter than the rest of my skin. I went to a doctor and she thought it was a fungal infection and gave me fluconazole 200mg for 2 weeks but it did nothing. She diagnosed by looking at it. No skin scrape test. Help.
