Tinea: Tinea manum is essentially athlete's foot of the hand. Prescription treatment should only take 2 weeks to work. Otc meds may not work or may take much longer. I see a lot of "fungus" that is not fungus--no scraping or diagnosis was confirmed. So see your doctor to verify the condition and get a strong enough treatment to fix it.
