Brief Answer:
Oral and topical antifungal

Detailed Answer:
Thank you. I have viewed the image.

I suggest you to take an oral antifungal e.g Cap. Itraconazole 100mg(Ceastra XL 100mg), twice daily for 2 weeks. In addition I suggest you to apply a topical antifungal e.g Amorolfine 0.025% cream(Fungicros cream), twice daily for 4 weeks. You may take an oral antihistamine e.g cetrizine 10mg tablet once a day for symptomatic relief from itching.

take care
Let me know if you need any more assistance
