SKA-- try this homemade remedy-- mix a few drops of iodine with a tablespoon or so of Vaseline jelly-- mix it well and apply.  The iodine should kill the fungus and the Vaseline will keep the iodine in place and also assist in suffocating the fungus. 

This is the homemade version of a product I love called Red Gel-- iodine gel-- used to be able to get in through PBS animal health and also I think Jeffers animal supply used to have it to. 

Or a really old homemade remedy is bacon grease or lard mixed into a paste with gunpowder.  Same principle-- the chemical in the gunpowder will kill it and the lard keeps it in place and also helps to suffocate it.
