Brief Answer:
Contact dermatitis??

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Generally antifungal topical treatments respond the fungal infection of the skin. If they are not responding then we should think of other causes, especially contact dermatitis as in your case.

There is a possibility of the same in your case. You may try Hydrocortisone over the counter cream over the spots. If it responds you can continue or else please see a local doctor for stronger topical steroids and / an oral prescription of steroids.
