Detailed Answer:
Hi

Greetings from Dr Divakara P
Thanks for posting your query.

The treatment what you have taken is right but the duration is very less.

You need to use the cream for at least 3 weeks for complete cure.

Hope this information was useful to you.
Any clarification feel free to ask.

Regards.
