Have you been given anything other than the anti-fungal creams?

Thanks for sharing

This is a fungal infection

But it do need an oral anti-fungal like Itraconazole or Terbinafine

I don,t think that Canesten will help much as it seems quite extensive

Also you should a complete blood count and blood glucose to look for evidence of diabetes and low white cell count

Please do let me know if you have any other question
