You have tinea corporis/cruris which is also known as ringworm/fungal infection. Kindly stop using the earlier medicines. You should take capsule Itraconazole 100 mg twice a day for 3 weeks. Also, take tablet Cetirizine 10 mg at night for the itching. Also apply Luliconazole/Sertaconazole/Eberconazole cream twice a day. Kindly take bath twice a day.

In uncontrolled diabetes, fungal infection is very common. Take care and stay healthy.
