hello. desonide is a steroid. steroids can increase infection. from your history it seems what you have is a fungal infection which increased by desonide application. pls stop applying desonide. am prescribing you antifungal medicines.
tab terbinafine 250 mg once a day
tab desloratidine 5 mg once a day
luliconazole cream twice daily
pls follow up after 15 days.
