This is a subject that for many guys is difficult to discuss – the dreaded jock itch. Despite the fact that it is rarely talked about, almost everyone develops an itchy infection in their crotch at some point in their lives, both men and women. Some people are lucky and are able to overcome it, while for others it can be a chronic and debilitating condition. Regardless of the name, it doesn’t happen to only athletes, but just about anyone with sweat glands in their nether regions.
What causes jock itch?The condition known as “jock itch” is primarily caused by a fungus that infects the grown, similar to that which causes athlete’s foot, ringworm, tinea versicolor or dandruff. The infection occurs when there is too much moisture in the groin area for a prolonged period of time. That moisture provides the conditions for the fungus to multiply and cause the unpleasant symptom known as “jock itch”.
It’s most common in the summer months due to higher temperatures causing more ball sweat, but it can also be triggered by clothing that is too insulating during winter. Hockey players often suffer from jock itch because they sweat profusely in their protective cups, and their balls stay like that for hours. People who wear uniforms, such as police officers and postal workers, are also common victims of jock itch.
Jock itch usually starts as a red patch of skin on the upper thigh that moves towards the center of the body, spreading outwards. It can get very itchy and accompanied by increased sensitivity in the region.
How to treat jock itch
Most cases of jock itch are treated by over-the-counter medications in the form of topical creams, anti-fungal powders and sprays. If you develop jock itch, you must treat it aggressively right away because once the fungus infects one part of your body, it can move onto your armpits, butt crack, back, legs and neck. The best way to deal with the disease is taking preventative measures and trying not to get it in the first place.
