Thank you for your query.

As your doctor has tried steroid and anti-fungal treatment to treat you grand-daughter without any relief I suggest that you consult a dermatologist who will be in a better position to guide you. Without having a look at the lesions it is not possible for me to guide you with the treatment.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your grand-daughter an early recovery.
