Infectious Diseases Specialist 's  Response
Thank you for your contact to health care magic. I understand your concern. If I am your doctor I suggest you that the cream you used is a steroid cream. It has nor role in curing the fungal infection. It gives only symptomatic relief also long duration of steroid causes skin atrophy. You should use candid ointment one without steroid.
I will be happy to answer your further concern
You can contact me.
