Doctor :   It would be better to see a Dermatologist as this is recurring even after using antifungal cream.
User :   sure sir
User :   is it because of the usage of soap?
Doctor :   May be the duration of the treatment has to be increased and use it regularly.
Doctor :   I don't think due to usage of soap, as if an allergic reaction then it has to be present all over the body.
User :   is there any other good antifungal cream than Zole-f?
Doctor :   Zole-f is a good antifungal and as it reduces after usage so you need to apply for atleast 15 to 20 days regularly.
