Brief Answer:
Oral and topical antifungals, antihistaminics

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic
I have gone through your complaints and you seem to be having extensive tinea.
You require topical and oral antifungals.
If I was your treating doctor I would recommend you to take tablet terbinafine 250 mg once daily in the morning and apply luliconazole cream on the affected area once daily for 4 weeks
For itching take antihistaminic like tablet levocetrizine 5 mg once or twice daily depending on the intensity of itching.
These are prescription drugs and should be taken under the supervision of the doctor.

I have been to the doctor many times in the last couple of months. I am a single mom with very little support and a high deductible. I do not have money to keep going to the doctor. I have something on the trunk of my body mostly. They first said it was dry skin. So I got a good lotion and used it. It just got worse. The next time they told me was ring worm. I ve used creams and got a steroid shot. Now I am on a steroid dose pack. I want rid of this. I saw where the tanning bed would dry it up. Is it ok to go to tanning bed taking steroid. Desperate
