In brief: NO!!!!

This is a steroid, and while a steroid cream will hide your symptoms and take the itch away, it does nothing to kill or treat the fungus! try using an otc anti-fungal cream like lotrimin, Lamisil or tinactin (tolnaftate) 2x/day for at least 30 days.
Your symptoms should disappear in 3-5 days, but since fungal sores live 30 days, you must use it for 30 days to prevent recurrence. Also... Don't scratch!
