Brief Answer:
Take full course of medication

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the follow up.
I have seen the reports.

You have been prescribed a good combination but a complete course of 3 months is must.
You can do the following
1. Take tablet zimig 250 mg daily for a month and apply the cream and powder as prescribed.
2. After one month take tablet fluconazole 150 mg weekly once for 8 weeks and apply the cream and powder. This is a prescription medicine that can cause side effects, therefore take after discussing with your doctor.

Maintain good personal hygiene and take hygienic food and cleaner water.
This should help you.

Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
