What causes fungal infection in the groin area and inner thighs?

I have a persisting fungal infection for last few years, the jock itch. It started from the groin area and later spread to areas on my ass, inner thighs, even the belt region (below torsoe) and sometime in the stomach region. There used to be continuous itching and i have tried a lot of medicines, both tablets and topical creams. To mention some: clotrimazole, candid-b, sebifin, flucon, absorb. And internally I took fluconazole tablets and Sebifin 250. I used to apply antifungal powders too. Over the years I had controlled it well but never got completely rid of it. Now it seems that it cannot be controlled. It is aggravating very fast. It is now appearing back to be chronic as before. There are many marks on my body and they start to be itchy in short intervals. The areas have also turned into white patches. Currently am not undergoing any kind of treatment, but i want to get rid of this fungal infection once and for all. Kindly suggest me what can be a permanently-alleviating and relieving treatment for this. I want to be free of this and healthy again. Please help.

Hello,

As per my surgical experience, the chronic fungal infection mandates evaluation of low immunity, systemic diseases as HIV or else.

I would like to evaluate all reports done till now for further advice on this matter ahead.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
