In brief: Anyone can get
Jock itch is the common name for a fungal infection of the groin or genital area.
It's also known as tinea cruris. Anyone can get it. It's thought that it can be spread from the feet to the groin, by bath towels or other ways. Fungi love areas that are warm, moist, and dark.
