Thanks for posting your query at DoctorSpring.com. I can understand your concern.

From the history you have provided, there seem following possibilities.

1. There is an underlying condition like diabetes or other immuno-suppressive illness.

2. It is misdiagnosed as tinea.

3. There it is an application of a steroid craven which is letting the fungus grow.

I would recommend that you send a picture of his condition to me if possible. Also i would recommend to meet your dermatologist to get a fungal scraping, culture and antibiotic sensitivity done.

Kindly let me know all your queries.

Take care
