Brief Answer:
Can be due to low immunity.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for asking Health care magic forum.

I have gone through your query. Your recurrent fungal infection- ring worm can be due to low immunity state. It is better to check your blood sugar levels to rule out Diabetes.

For the condition like yours if you were my patient i advise terbinafine solution to apply twice daily ,ketoconazole soap or powder to use daily and fluconazole 400 tab that is nuforce to use weekly once for 3 months. In case fluconazole oral tab is not working then I advise terbinafine tab once a day for 4 weeks.But Liver function should be monitored while taking terbinafine. Talk to your doctor about this.

Hope this may help you. Let me know if anything not clear.

My Dr said I had severe Tinea Cruis, but both topical and oral anti fungal s were not working. Ketoconazole 2%, and OTC miconazole, and oral Terbinafine. After 4 weeks of topical and 3 weeks of the oral terbinafine, he perscribed me a tube of Betamethasone, and everyday it has gotten better. But now says it was an alergic reaction, but nothing has changed in my groin area.
