Suggest treatment for fungal infection on groin, thighs and wrist

Hello a fungal infection developed on my groin area 20 days back and 10 days later it spread in small 3 to 4 spots on my thighs and a ring shaped infection on my left wrist. I am currently applying Ring Guard and bathing with a clotrimazole soap. What else could I do to get rid of this permanently ?

For fungal infection on groin, thighs and wrist you can take some antibiotics like cefadroxyl or zifi-cv after an expert opinion along with cetrizine or Avil for redness and itching. Apply betnovate-c or clobit-gm cream locally over the affected area. You can take steroids if not improved with above treatment.
