I have a friend of mine who had a jock itch. How to do you stop them? It doesn't work with Cortizone-10 Plus for months. It keeps itching. I told my friend why don't go to see doctor. He dislikes go doctor office. I don't know what to do with it. Anybody who had experience with jock itch before and it can cured. Please don't make a bad joke or embarrassment to talk about it. My friend is having embarrass to talk about it. I can understand there is nothing wrong with it. It can happen with disease anywhere.

Thanks for your advance,

Big777jet

Personally, I've found mild dehydration can cause JI. Drink more water.




Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

Same fungus as Althete's Foot [and ringworm] take a stroll down the Wal Mart aisle, and/or look up http://www.drugstore.com/

A $4.00 cure.

Try keeping soap away from the infected area. Soap is an irritant so wash your goods with water only.

Have your girlfriend scratch it. It won't cure it, but it will take your mind off the itch for a while.

Like FPDonald said, it's the same fungus that causes athlete's foot. Get an anti-fungal ointment. Wash your hands after you have applied it so that you don't spread it to any other part of your body (or else, you'll get ringworm).

The only thing that a hyrdrocortisone will do is reduce itching and swelling, and possibly speed up the healing process. But none of that can happen until you've killed the fungus.

It's a fungus that causes itchiness and redness of the skin. It's generally very itchy, but after scratching it, it often stings or burns. Typically, jock itch is a low-grade fungus. It's easy to kill using an anti-fungal ointment. But if you let it go too long, it may travel to other parts of your body in the shape of red, ring-shaped eruptions, known as ring worm. Ring worm becomes more problematic, particularly if it gets on your scalp.

But usually this is a very common, easily treated problem.

My son played hockey for about 11 years and he got it from wearing any type of boxers or undies that had nylon in them???? Drink lots of water...hydration usually helps...use good old "Corn Starch" at bedtime and sleep nude so the air can circulate!

What you call "Jock Itch" is a mycosis, that is a fungus infection. It can affect other parts of the body, mostly wet and humid areas (armpits for example). Very obese people also have a tendency to develop that condition, in the interstices of their body fat.

What your friend needs is an anti-mycosis ointment. The real effective ones are prescribed by doctors and the treatment is quite cheap, usually less than $15, at least here in Canada. Please don't believe in some of the tricks you've read here. Some times the infection gets a bit more complicated and it requires a drug treatment. Overall it's a benign condition that will heal very well if treated appropriately and in time.



Never let the facts get in the way of a good theory.
