Alopecia or infection?

About 1.5 weeks ago i was running my hand through my hair and found a bald spot on top of my head. Since then it has grown in size unfortunately and is causing me plenty of stress and worry. But I have other symptoms too, excessive dandruff and yellowish substance on my nails when i scratch my scalp, itching and bumps on my scalp on the perimeter of my bald spot. I saw my doctor and he said its either some fungal infection or alopecia, and he prescribed me anti-fungal shampoo and topical steroid cream.

Can anyone help out please?
