Brief Answer:
Itraconazole

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query.

Fungal infections develop resistance very soon and hence reoccur. I treat such cases with capsule Itraconazole and ointment clotrimazole. This gives excellent response and a total cure.

While itraconazole requires a prescription from your doctor, clotrimazole ointment may be available over the counter.

Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thanks
