Brief Answer:
Clotrimazole...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Dermatophytosis (fungal infection on skin) would respond to treatment with antifungal agents. Topical agents like clotrimazole might be available over the counter. You can try it - apply a thin layer on the affected area for 2 - 3 weeks.

However if the area affected are too many and too large, I would favour use of oral antifungal agents like itraconazole. This is a prescription only drug. Your local doctor will know about it.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.

Brief Answer:
I wouldn't be able to do that...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

The laws of the state as well as ethics do not allow us to write a prescription or call for it without a physical examination. You need to visit a doctor for oral medication.
