How can you tell jock itch from other nonfungal rashes down there?

In brief: Fungus

The difference between jock itch (tinea cruris)and non-fungal groin rashes is the presence (or absence) of fungus.
It is a common condition that can be easy to clear up but it can also be easy to get again, like athlete's foot (tinea pedis).
