No improvement with candiderm cream for tinea versicolor. Is it advisable to continue using it?

I have had tinea versicolor since 2009 on my arms, thighs and neck and my doctor advised me to apply candiderm cream for a month but the brown patches have not disappeared is it advisable for me to continue use since its over a month now? Not really sure if its tinea versicolor coz my doctor said it was tinea coporsis..taken flucunazole tablets for a month still no change..
