Brief Answer:
Oral and topical antifungal medications

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you.
I suggest her to take an oral antifungal e.g either terbinafine 250mg tablet or itraconazole 100mg capsule for a duration of 4-6 weeks.. In addition to that she may use a topical antifungal e.g either Luliconazole 1% cream or Amorolfine 0.25% cream, twice daily for a 6-8 weeks. For itching she may take tablet cetirizine 10mg once a day for a few days. These are all prescription medications which she must take under supervision and regular follow up at 2 week intervals.
Take care. Let me know if you need any more assistance
