Hi! rishav,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

Rishav ,the treatment you are taking is not of fungal infection fact it seems to be of PSORIASIS .Did your treating doctor tell you that you have fungal infection or is that your guess.
The treatment of fungal infection is anti fungal medicines and not these which you are taking.
Kindly describe your basic skin problem in detail ,so that I can suggest you a good treatment option.Also tell me the diagnosis which your doctor had made for you.

Hi again,
rishav ,was it itchy anytime..if it was then with your description it could be fungal infection or a folliculitis.But then you were given completely different medicine .The one you are taking is for psoriasis.
If you can m ail me your snap (close up and one of whole scalp ) ,probably I can help you with the diagnosis.
My mail id is
For this you should consult a dermatologist rather than a general physician.

Hello again,

I think you should consult a dermatologist soon.some features of your are suggestive of seborrheic dermatitis ,few of psoriasis and few of DLE.I would help you further if I had got to see the lesion .So consult a experienced dermatologist and follow the treatment.And also let me know what was his diagnosis.
