Symptoms and Causes

The leading cause of jock itch is a fungal mold that grows in the body’s warm, moist parts. It can transmit from direct skin-to-skin exposure to an infected person or from contaminated surfaces like used clothes or towels of an infected person. Here are some of the symptoms of the jock itch most people experience:

  • Circular rash with raised edges 
  • Peeling or cracking of skin with a scaly look
  • Intense itch and burning in the affected area
  • Small blisters with a ring or half-ring shape
  • Rash with irritation on the groin, buttocks, and upper thighs
  • Skin pigmentation depending upon the infection and skin type from tan, purple, grey, or white

You are more likely to get jock itch if you are a teen or young male, work most of the day in sweaty situations, wear tight clothing like underwear or jeans, and have an underlying health condition and weak immunity. Are you doubt whether the itch in the groin is a jock itch? Consult our certified doctors today and get the treatment and prescription for jock itch online.

FAQs About Jock Itch

What is the best treatment for a jock itch or rash?

The best way to treat jock itch is using antifungal medications, either OTC or your doctor's prescription. You can consult a doctor at Your Doctors Online to prescribe jock itch antifungal cream. Another way to treat jock itch is by applying a cold compress over the affected area, as it can reduce inflammation and irritation.

What is the fastest way to cure jock itch?

The fastest way to cure jock itch is by using over-the-counter or prescription antifungal cream, ointment, spray, or powder. Otherwise, your doctor may prescribe you oral antifungal tablets to heal faster. Along with the treatment, keep the area dry and clean to help medicines work better and reduce the chances of fungal growth.

Why is it so hard to get rid of jock itch?

The fungus which causes jock itch can persist for a long time if the conditions are ideal for its growth, like remaining in sweaty situations even during the infection, reusing contaminated towels or bedding, and using damp clothing. Any source of moisture can only promote fungal growth and aggravate the overall condition. Therefore, improve your hygiene habits and avoid exposure to sweaty situations and damp clothes.

Can you get rid of jock itch permanently?

Jock itch can be eliminated by following the doctor's advice, taking medications as directed, and avoiding exposure to moist warm conditions ideal for fungus growth.

How to treat severe or resistant groin itching?

Severe itching can be avoided using antifungal shampoo containing selenium sulfide and ketoconazole to treat jock itch. These medications are prescription only, and you can get the cure for such medications from our doctors at Your Doctors Online.

How long does it take for the jock itch to go away with antifungal cream?

With antifungal over-the-counter creams, jock itch usually goes away in 2-4 weeks. Our doctors at Your Doctors Online may prescribe some prescription antifungal treatment if the over-the-counter medicines don’t work, as they are stronger alternatives that are effective for persistent fungal infections.

What if the jock itch won't go away?

If the jock itch persists and doesn’t go away even with antifungal medications, your doctor may prescribe stronger alternatives like fluconazole and itraconazole. You can get jock rash treatment and the prescription for these medications at Your Doctors Online.

What is the best treatment for jock itch and athlete's foot?

Antifungal treatment, either over-the-counter ointments or prescription medications, is the best way to treat jock itch and athlete’s food. The causal agents of both diseases are fungal molds. In the case of a jock itch, the tinea cruris affects the groin region, while the cause of the athlete’s foot is the tinea pedis, which affects the feet. Some antifungal medicines like Clotrimazole can help treat jock itch and athlete’s foot.

Is there a female version of jock itch?

Jock itch is more common in men but can also affect women in rare situations. In women, it affects the skin around the groin, buttock, or inner thighs and rarely affects the genital area.
