Dermatologist 's  Response
As per the history elicited, dermatophytosis is the most probable diagnosis.
Candiderm cream contains betamenthasone along with antifungal - clotrimazole.
Betamethasone being a steroid may apparently give a false feel of treating the disease, but actually it aggravates the disease. Stop the use of candiderm and start using plain antifungal cream. Meanwhile consult a dermatologist for proper treatment.
