FAQs about Jock Itch treatment online
What is the strongest prescription for jock itch?
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?
Yes, jock itch may persist in some cases but can be treated effectively with oral and topical medications available upon prescription. Fungal infections don't come back too soon if treated with the right treatment regime and hygienic practices to avoid moisture.
Why do I keep getting jock itch?
Jock itch infection can reappear if you provide the fungus optimal conditions for its growth, like being excessively sweaty, causing moisture in the covered surfaces like the groin and inner thighs. Moreover, wearing tight clothes during warmer climates and not taking personal hygiene seriously can also trigger reinfection.
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. Your doctor 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 happens if jock itch goes untreated?
If jock itch is left untreated, it can spread to other body parts, causing flare-ups. Moreover, it can develop into a severe skin infection and become treatment-resistant.
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.
