Hello Lybrate user, while it is not proven, wearing tight jeans can lead to infections in the groin since they lead to increase of local temperature and humidity. Groin itch can be easily cured with over the counter creams. Moreover, the testes are uniquely designed to maintain proper temperature for healthy sperm growth, so wearing jeans all the time can be bad for your sperm count. I would advise you to wear jeans only occasionally, and make sure to keep hygiene and cleanliness.

Hi, I have jock itch for a week now from tight underwear. I applied rubbing alcohol to treat the itching and inflammations every morning and night. Right now I noticed some parts have skin peeling and some parts have white circular areas that consist of dried skin. Does this mean that my jock itch is going away?

Fungal infection or Ring worm. When occurs in groin, called as jock itch. Usually fungal infection is common in moist areas of body like skin folds. It's mostly circular or round in appearance. May be red or black in colour. Treatment depending on the type and severity. Avoid sharing clothes, towels and soap; sweating also increases it. As it has to be differentiated from eczema and infection, its a must to see and confirm the diagnosis for proper treatment. So, please send photos of the affected area by direct online consultation for accurate diagnosis and treatment.

There is no Antibiotic for jock itch You have to take oral antifungal tablets like terbinfine for about 2 weeks or more Wear cotton clothes and apply anti fungal powders to keep the area dry.

Wash the skin two to three times a day. Keep the skin dry. Avoid excess groin skin irritation by wearing 100% cotton underwear. Avoid fabric softeners, bleaches, or harsh laundry detergents. Wash your workout clothes, underwear, socks, and towels after each use. Keep your groin, inner thighs, and buttocks clean and dry, especially after you exercise and shower. After showering or bathing, dry the irritated groin area by gently patting it with a towel. Be sure to dry your skin thoroughly. Mix two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in two cups of warm water. Wash the infected area with this solution and allow it to dry on its own. Another option is to apply a mixture of equal parts of white vinegar and coconut oil on the affected skin. Like hydrogen peroxide, rubbing alcohol can help kill off the fungus that's on the surface level of the skin. You can apply it directly to the affected area Listerine: It has antiseptic, antifungal and antibacterial properties, which help treat itch.
