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. Tea tree oil can also be irritating to that area of the body and cause allergic dermatitis. need to see MD ASAP no sex yet. ...Read more

Apple cider vinegar, tea tree oil, and garlic are promoted on "natural healing" sites for everything -- trying them would be your business. Best wishes. ...Read more
