Have you continued to treat it, even though the redness has disappeared? Please make sure that you treat the spot for as long as your doctor recommended, or 3 weeks or so.
It will change colors a bit as the fungus is killed off, that's completely normal. And how long it takes for it to completely disappear depends upon how fast your daughter's skin heals and replaces the damaged cells.
Give it at least a month though, for it to be unnoticeable, and any further concerns should be addressed to her pediatrician.
