If you are sure about the fungal infection, you should do 2 things: try to identify the precipitating factors for repeatedly skin fungal infection and try to control that (give example, with moist skin or the air is too humid you can change your clothes or underwear or you can use dehumidifier) and only use antifungal cream, not the one including steroids such as Lotrisone which you currently use.
