The : The answer is simple. If you are self treating with no results and you want to know if it really is a fungal infection, then you need to see your primary care doctor or a dermatologist. A diagnosis can be made and appropriate treatment can be started. All the best.

Agree with Dr. J: If over the counter anti-fungal treatment has not helped, it is time to see a doctor.
