Practicing good hygiene is the best against jock itch. Regular hand-washing can greatly reduce your risk of getting this infection from someone else. It’s also important to keep your skin clean and dry, especially the area around your groin. Wash the area regularly with soap and dry the area thoroughly after bathing. Applying baby powder around your groin can also be helpful for preventing excess moisture.
I found the perfect cure. First off, don’t waste any money on OTC creams. None of them including Tinactin or Lomitrin work. Maybe in very early stages, but the JI will only come back worse than before you used an OTC cream.
Items needed 1. Hairdryer 2. Selsun Blue shampoo 3. Borax – the 20 mules 4. ORGANIC Apple Cider Vinegar – Braggs is one of the brand names. 5. Benadryl – I prefer the liquids – anti itch while sleeping.

Mike, You need to restore Your skin, first. Visit a local beekeeper and ask him to give You fresh, real honey. Real honey will restore the wounds and then You can use garlic application. Put a few small pieces of garlic and some water in the twister and twist for a few minutes, then apply. Again, honey first, then garlic and everything else described above! Good luck!
If the cream doesn’t work, Fluconozole 150mg as a single dose orally is the treatment but it is a schedule H drug and has to be prescribed by a doctor. Don’t take this drug on your own, get prescribed.
I tried hand Sanitizer and It worked like a charm. After taking the shower dry the affected area first then take a cotton ball & put some drops of hand sanitzer on it and clean affected area with it.It will cause a burning sensation for a short time.
Jock itch can be triggered by friction from clothes and prolonged moistness in the groin area, such as from sweating. A fungal infection of the feet can spread to the groin area by pulling up pants if the waistband gets contaminated with fungus from the feet.
Though easily curable; some uncommon cases of prolonged jock itch may not be curable. These resistant cases may be controlled with proper medication & treatment. Usually jock itch rash clears itself completely without any treatment.
The diagnosis of jock itch is usually based on the symptoms and skin appearance. A microscopic examination of skin scrapings covered in a drop of potassium hydroxide will confirm a fungal cause of jock itch. Occasionally, a fungal culture of the skin scrapings may be necessary. Certain bacteria can produce an eruption in the groin indistinguishable from a fungal infection. An examination with a special ultraviolet light, a Wood’s light, will enable identification.
