Opinions on what's prescription strength for jock itch and athlete's foot?

If you have both: Jock itch and athlete's foot, you have fungal spores on most of your clothes, which don't wash out and are not killed in the heat of a drier. So it might be best to go on an oral medication to get rid of this. Lamisil (terbinafine) has a very long half life and a 2 week treatment will stay in your system for 30 days, the time needed to treat fungal infections, since spores live for 30 days. See a dermatologist. ...Read more

It started off as what looked like athletes foot. It spread a bit but started going away. It comes back now n then and itches really bad. What to do?

Two Weeks.: You said nothing about treating it already, so I'm under the impression you didn't. Begin by trying an OTC type anti fungal topical. There are many at the local drug store. If you need help, ask the pharmacist. If there is any doubt that this is not a fungal infection and possibly some other problem, then, see your doctor. You can mix in a little cortisone cream for the severe itching. ...Read more
