Thanks for being at healthcaremagic
I have reviewed the attached photographs and would like to ask you few questions:
For how long are you using terbinafine cream and tablet ?

Brief Answer:
Continue terbinafine tab, change topical antifungal & take levocetrizine

Detailed Answer:
2-3 days is too less a time to see the benefit of these medicines.
I would recommend you to continue with terbinafine tablet.
If you are not fine in using terbinafine cream I would recommend you to change it to some other topical antifungal like sertaconazole cream or luliconazole cream.
For itching instead of Cetrizine I would recommend you to take tablet levocetrizine 5 mg twice daily for 2 weeks.
Besides this keep the area dry, wear cotton underwear, stay in cool airy environment and avoid sharing of soap and towel.
