Jock Strap Rash
What can I take to stop jock strap itch on my scrotum area? It itches and sometimes it bleeds when scratched
Antifungal creams: 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 (terbinafine) cream. If it is because of yeast infection, use Nystatin cream.

Easy to explain: It makes you sweat more and move less while sleeping. I'm glad you're eager to make a change. You're still young and probably vigorous. Head down to the local gym or sports center, let others see that you're working hard on your body, and they'll accept you as a friend and support you in your body transformation. A lot more is at stake than just the skin in your groin and neck. Best wishes.

A few possibilities: Jock itch doesn't always itch. Erythrasma causes a similar looking rash; it requires antibiotics by mouth. If you are overweight or diabetic, it could be just irritation from moisture, yeast, or other superficial infection. Keep it clean and dry, and try a jock itch ointment if not yet done. If these don't work, see a doctor -- perhaps a dermatologist if your PCP hasn't been able to sort it out.
Clotrimazole: 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.
Jock Itch: Jock itch is a fungal infection of the groin area. The most effective treatment for this once you have it is any number of antifungal sprays or creams like tinactin (tolnaftate). The key is to keep the area clean and dry after athletic activity and to use clean dry undrgarments including a clean/dry athletic supporter that fits well and does not continously rub and irritate the affected area.See 1 more doctor answer

How can you tell the difference between jock rash and herpes? I had athletes foot then got the rash on the inner thighs
Tines cruris: The rashes look different. Definitive diagnosis is made by culturing a scraping for fungus. This will also tell you what type of fungus it is because different ones will have different characteristics. Viral culture of a vesicle will prove whether herpes simplex is present. Put your socks on before your underpants. Many times the underpants touch your toes and bring fungus into your groin.See 1 more doctor answer
