How to Cure Jock Itch


  • Mayo says:

    Here are a few tips to help you not get, or get rid of, jock itch.

    Since the athletes foot fungus is very closely related to the one that causes jock itch, put on your socks BEFORE you put on your clean underwear. This prevents any fungus on your feet from coming into contact with the groin area.

    Talcum or silica powder can help dry the skin, however mineral-based talcum powder is dangerous if inhaled in quantity. Silica powder, an environmentally inert material, is a safer choice.

    Last but not least, stop scratching!

  • Kevin says:

    Hi another method to help with avoiding jock itch all together is I know it sounds stupid and a no brainier but you would be surprised at how many people wash there under wear with their socks or there towels with their socks gross but it happens so wash those items separately
