Brief Answer:
Various suggestions for fungal infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome back and thanks for posting your pictures.

After analyzing the pictures and correlating with your details I can make out that you have fungal infection of the affected area. This is quite florid and spreaded up where zocon will not work.

In such kind of situation I suggest my patients to apply sertaconazole cream over the affected area. Additionally an oral antifungal such as itraconazole 200 mg once a day is required. This is to be taken for minimum 6 weeks.

Additionally maintain a good hygiene and avoid synthetic clothes. Wear cotton clothes and cotton undergarments.

I hope this helps.
