In brief: = "jock itch"

The same fungus can inhabit your feet, groin, armpits.
So if treating one area, may need to treat all areas to be sure you kill it off and it does not immediately return. Lotrimin (clotrimazole) af is an otc example, and comes as cream or powdered spray for ease of application 2-3 times a day. Treatment can take weeks to resolve.
