No will make worse: Jock itch is a fungal infection needing to be treated by antifungal medication. Clobetasol is a steroid. It suppresses the immune system so it will make fungal infections much worse. It is useful in genital skin disorders caused by inflammation -- things like eczema. Consider a virtual visit with a healthtap primary care doctor and attach an image of the affected area. Correct diagnosis required
