I was DX with jock itch week ago. Took a zpack, clindamycin, tea tree oil 2x a day. I still have a rash how long is recovery how long until Ihave sex?

Uncertain diagnosis: Well, I'm confused about why you would be given antibiotics for "jock itch" as that is a fungal skin rash. That can become infected with skin bacteria after it's been scratched at, but then you would still need an antifungal cream or oral antifungal medication to clear it up.
