Hi Madhuji,
Welcome to HCM.
Fungal infections are common in areas of the body where there is increased sweat, moisture allows the fungi to grow easily. Fungal treatment ranges from few weeks to atleast three months. Even though the rashes disappear the fungi might be remaining dormant. Thats why it is very necessary to complete the whole course of treatment.
Also, those areas of the body should be kept clean and dry. Personal hygiene is very important here.
Avoid very tight clothes and get in touch with your dermatologist for the complete course of antifungal therapy.
