In brief: Anti fungal cream

Altered gut ecology causes fungal infection orally take garlic daily either fresh cloves chopped and take with water like a pill or allicidin as caps and locally apply anti fungal cream twice daily.
Make sure your sugar levels are normal.

In brief: See a dermatologist

You need a diagnosis.
What you may think is fungal may be many things, like psoriasis, lichen planus, and many other serious dermatologic condtions that are treated far differently than fungal infections. A scraping of the lesion may be needed or even a small biopsy of the lesion. An experienced dermatologist should be able to help you. If recalcitrant yeast, gential violet may be the answer.
