What is Jock Itch and how can it be treated?

Jock itch isn’t a serious health condition but it can be very unsightly and not to mention irritating. The infection causes a red, itchy, circular rash on the areas affected. Read on to know how it can be treated.
Jock itch is common in men with weak immune system

Jock Itch is a popular name for itchy groin rash that is a form of ringworm. It is caused by fungus growth in the groin area mainly due to sweating, tight clothing, rubbing of skin and humidity. This infection is more common in men, but can also affect women. Jock itch is characterised by a pink or red rash with patches that may be peeling or have bumps on the edges. The itching is quite intense and often leads to spreading of infection.

While any healthy men can get the infection, men who are diabetic, obese or use public showers and locker rooms are more likely to get it. As the fungus grown commonly in the damp towels, workout clothes and wet floors, athletes are also at high risk of developing the infection. Jock itch is usually not serious, but it can be very annoying and embarrassing.

To treat Jock Itch ringworm, personal hygiene is as important as using topical antifungal solutions. While using the treatment, keep the groin area dry and exposed to air. Wear clean and loose clothes to cover the area. Maintain proper groin hygiene by cleaning the areas frequently with gentle soap and water. Cleaning is more important after sweating or exercise. Make sure that you dry the area using wash cloth after washing. Apply the treatment product twice or thrice a day and wear loose clothing.

You can easily prevent jock itch by using anti fungal powders regularly in the various skin folds. Maintaining good hygiene and wear loose-fitting cotton underwear also help keep the infection at bay. For athletes or those who are frequent at gym and sports clubs it is essential to wear clean sports gear every time and washing groin area after sweating.
