In brief: For what?

It is possible that your condition is not fungal.
I would hope that some test was performed to confirm a fungal diagnosis. This could be a skin scraping viewed under a microscope or a fungal culture. Sme fungal infections may not respond as well to a topical form of a medicine so the systemic form may be required.
