5 Steps To Treat Jock Itch

 

If you’re yearning to scratch, follow these simple steps to treat a nasty case of jock itch:

 

  • Keep the skin clean and dry. Use a clean towel and wash it after each use.

 

  • Wear comfortable, breathable clothing on the infected area, like cotton boxers and pants.

 

  • Apply topical over-the-counter antifungal creams, powders or sprays.

 

  • Most of these antifungal medications fall into two categories: allylamines or azoles. Allylamines work faster.

 

  • If over-the-counter medicine isn’t strong enough, call your doctor and get an appointment for a prescription. Doc can offer you stronger topical medicine or oral meds.

 

 

PRZ TIP:

When you get jock itch, treat it like athlete’s foot. It’s a fungus that thrives in moist environments. Refrain from scratching yourself. Make sure you shower often using a mild soap. Keep your groin area clean. Wash your bike supporter often. Don’t keep sweaty clothes around—wash them immediately.
