Ringworm, erythema annulare centrifugum around thighs and breast, candid b, grisofulvin, flucanazole 150mg, applied dettol

hi doctor i am suffering from ringworm for the past seven months. i have tried all sorts of medicine but it is only aggravating. i even used homeopathetic medicine which aggravated it further. i stopped the homeopathetic medicine within one week. the ringworms seems to have changed into erythermal annulare centrifugae(EAC) around my inner thighs and under one of the breasts. i am using candid b ointment and taking grisofulvin and have recently started flucanazole 150mg. i have applied undiluted dettol over the area which has darkened it. i dont know whether it is going to help or not. please kindly help. day and night i am worried about this skin condition.

It seems that you are having fungal infection only.
Chronic infection takes some time to cure.
Complete oral course of Flucanozole 150 mg once in a week for 4-6 weeks.
Apply anti-fungal cream.
Keep local part clean, dry and airy.
For itching take Cetrizine or Benadryl to prevent itching which spreads the infection.
Ok and take care.
