Itching armpit, worsens when sweating. Dark discoloration in armpit. Prescribed Flucos gel. Treatment?

Hi, I have an itching left arm pit since long time. It itches almost the entire day and specially more when I sweat. The entire arm pit has turned dark. There is a slight discoloration starting in the right as well. A Dermatologist once prescribed me Flucos Gel, which I used for a couple of weeks or so but had very little improvement. Should I continue using the Gel generously for a longer duration or change the treatment? Please advise.

Hi ,
The condition can be tinea corporis,corynebacterial infection.
You need to apply clotrimazole cream or miconazole gel over the area twice daily for 2-4 weeks.
Also oral antifungal like fluconazole would be helpful.
Using antifungal powder like Tyza powder would also be helpful.
Hope this helps.
I will be available for follow up.
