Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
can you upload a clear jpg photo
kotoconazole can be very irritating to the skin
you may do better with a milder antifungal cream like clotrimazole1%
and taking diflucan (fluconizole)
the back of your neck looks very read
that area is not a very common area to have a fungal infection.
the steroid cream may be what is helping the most
and can cause the skin more dry.
The area of the neck appears inflamed and infected.Do you have serious acne problem as this appears to be neck acne and not fungal infection.This should be treated like body acne elsewhere,wear crew neck shirts with no collars to avoid rubbing against the neck.Do not rub or pick at the area,Use of Isotretinoin/Accutane orally for a few weeks, and local use of Glycolic acid 10% and benzoyl peroxide 2% application to the neck will help clear the area.
