Topical Antifungals: Jock itch or tinea cruris is a fungal skin infection in the groin/inner thigh. It is characterized by a red itching rash in this location with small satellite lesions. It is easily cured with topical(miconazole, econazole, clotrimazole, terbinafine) or oral(fluconazole, itraconazole, terbinifine) antifungal treatment. Topical treatments are available over the counter.
