Follow instructions.: Your physician is the one you need to ask since he has already examined you and prescribed the medications. It is impossible to second-guess.

See a dermatologist: You do not give the diagnosis. You do not indicate the names of the cream or capsules. "Itchy red bumps" is probably not fungus. Where are they? How extensive? Intertrigo? Folliculitis? See a dermatologist.
