Fungal infection widespread

I have a fungal growth on multiple area of the body. They appear like round , inflammed regions on the skin. They itch a lot, and when I scratch them, small white scabs appear like dead skin. I have uploaded an image. I have been on an antifungal treatment for two months, but it was of noo benefit. Any help would be appreciated.

Does not work in many, fluconazole. Your doc may put you on terbinafine, or griseofulvin for best results.

Any pointers for the time being? Is it curable, can it be eradicated?

Fairly typical of tinea corpris(fungus), sometimes difficult to treat, especially if given steroids by mistake(tinea incognito).

Did not have steroids, just fluconazole as an antifungal. The ointments were also plain fluconazole.
