Brief Answer:
Excision and HPE appears more appropriate

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for your query and clear history and the picture.
The history of this being present for months, non-healing character, positioning in the crease and appearance in picture you have provided leads me to the decision as follows.

The best option is to consult a surgeon for clinical evaluation and possibly surgical excision.
The reasons :
- Position in a crease
- long duration
- you must have already tried all possible treatment options
- appearance in the picture, thickened, cracked skin around also changed.
- you get rid of the disease
- and most importantly you get HPE, a confirmed diagnosis as to what the problem is.

I hope, this is the best policy in the given circumstances.

Please feel free to ask for further relevant queries or if you feel that there is a gap of communication.
