Brief Answer:
Fungal infection. Oral and Topical antifungal

Detailed Answer:
Thank you.
I have viewed the Image. She seems to have a fungal infection.
I suggest an Oral antifungal e.g either terbinafine or fluconazole for at least 4-6 weeks. She may also use a topical antifungal cream e.g either Luliconazole 1% cream or Sertaconazole nitrate 2% cream, twice daily for 4-6 weeks.
In addition she may also take a tablet of cetrizine 10mg for symptomatic relief from itching.
