MOST "Jock-Itch" is a superficial fungal infection of the skin in the groin area. If this is the case, many athlete's foot remedies will work here as well. The ones to try first are Lotrimin ULTRA or Lamisil Cream. If it is because of yeast infection, use Nystatin cream.

If you have used it over a month with no results, I would see your doctor as you might need something stronger than what is available OTC or it might be something other than fungus.

Jock itch medication I have had jock itch for a few weeks, and have been using an OTC cream. How long should it take to resolve before I go to a dermatologist?

2 weeks

Lotrimin over the counter does not always work for jock itch anymore. Often prescription antifungal creams such as Naftin cream are needed. See a physician if you do not see improvement within 2 weeks.

Jock itch is a fungal rash and should be treated with an anti fungal. There are many over-the-counter formulation which are all effective. The key to treatment is to continue applying the cream few days after the rash is gone, to prevent recurrence. Also, keep your groin clean and dry as much as you can.
