I looked at the pictures and that's heavy toe fungus from the looks of it. I'm glad you are seeing your doctor. It can take months for it to go away. Oral medication such as terbinfine (brand names are Lamisil and Terbinex) are supposed to be effective. These are pills you take and not a cream like you've been using. Your doctor should be able to prescribe that? I'd ask them to. https://my.clevelandclinic.org/health/drugs/19379-terbinafine-tablets

Here's some home remedies to try. https://www.healthline.com/health/home-remedies-for-toenail-fungus  Tree Tea oil is very popular, for example.

Really important that if you shower in a shower that others use that you wear shower shoes. They can actually get your toe fungus otherwise.

Medication for fungus may help the other spots on your foot which could be athlete's foot. You could try your cream on that or the tree tea oil and if your doctor will prescribe medication, that would likely help.
