Brief Answer:
Apply KZ cream for 6 weeks.

Detailed Answer:

Welcome to Ask a Doctor Service.

Fungal infections take at least 4 weeks to cure.

You can apply KZ cream (Ketokonazole cream) for at least 6 weeks for complete remission from the fungal infection.

It is however essential to consult your doctor once a week to asses the progress.

I hope that answers your query.

Wishing you speedy recovery.
