HiThis needs to be swabbed and sent to the lab.It is not a situation for self treatment at this point.A 5 day course of anti fungal is not adequate in many cases, and a 2 week course might be required.I will be glad to look at a picture here as well,.

Can I get this service thru yourselves or do I need to go my own GP for the swab.
I am using talcum powder to keep it dry which is helping.
