Small fungal infection

Etienne Jr. Alias The Cow is doing wonderful, eating very well, playing like a nut job, pooping and peeing well everything fine EXCEPT a small fungal patch on his eyebrow, above his right eye. I took him to the vet she did a scrape and as I suspected FUNGUS. No behavioral changes all good as I said. He's already on a medicine, a cream to apply directly, twice a day. She says the infection is still small to use other treatments so cream should be fine.
My question is: Are there any natural remedies to help accelerate the healing process aling with his med?
He's leaving in a few weeks go live with my brother and his girlfriend and I want him to go fungus free ♡
God I'm going to miss that cow BIIIIIIIIIIIIG TIME

Awww... what a little sweetie, and what a doll you are for taking such good care, Koteburo! The one thing I know of is organic coconut oil. It's been recommended by several people for Nookie, but I have to clear it with Dr. Steve first just due to Nookies "unique" conditions. Coconut oil has antibacterial and antifungal properties. I googled this page for you. It has some info and says it's safe for cats:

Fungus as in ringworm? Colloidal silver would be my recommendation. Here's a link with dosage info and other treatment options: http://holisticat.com/ringworm.html

Definitely looking into this. Yoshimi one of the white cats has a tiny dot already. Last thing I want is a multicat household with ringworm.

Yay! Got the colloidal silver. I'm hopeful. Regular ointments did not work. It's a tough b@st@rd that fungus but not tougher than us by Tomorrow or Monday I'll be receiving a big jar of organic coconut oil. I wanted to do this before but there was a mess up with my order.
My poor babies are now on ketoconazole but if I can spare them time on that drug by all means I will. I already started applying the silver
