Brief Answer:
Oral and topical antifungal

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to ask a doctor service. I have gone through your query and viewed the images.

I can see red, scaly, patches which are suggestive of fungal infection. I would advice you to take an oral antifungal e.g either Itraconazole 100mg capsule, twice daily for 4- 6 weeks. In addition you may use either luliconazole 1% cream or ketoconazole 2% cream, twice daily for the same duration. You may take an oral antihistamine e.g cetirizine 10mg tablet once a day for a few days for symptomatic relief from itching. These are prescription medications to be taken under supervision and with regular follow up.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you need any more assistance.
