Can econazole cream for jock itch be used in combination with over-the-counter lotrimen jock itch spray or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) sprays to suppress itching?

Benadryl (diphenhydramine) spray is ok but there are other otc stuff such as tricalm, itch x that may be more effective.

Some recommend raw almonds for the trace amounts of arsenic in them which are known to THICKEN the hair, not cause it to grow faster. Avoiding stress and cigarette smoke may also help. ...Read more

I have had jock itch for over a week, I've been treating with econazole nitrate for 11 days and using miconazole nitrate powder. Is it ok to have sex or will I transfer this to my partner?

I have had jock itch for over a week, I've been treating with econazole nitrate for 11 days and using miconazole nitrate powder. Is it ok to have sex or will I transfer this to my partner?

No risk, no worries: The fungi that cause jock itch are around all the time anyway, whether or not someone has obvious jock itch. Most people carry them, and therefore exposure to somone with active jock itch doesn't increase their risk. It's best to avoid sex in severe infections with inflammation, soreness, weeping fissures, etc -- but this is mostly for comfort, not partner protection. No worries. ...Read more
