Wearing briefs also makes a perfect breeding ground for fungus to thrive. Warm, moist and dark.
Switch to boxers with loose leg openings and this will allow air to circulate in that area.
I have been wearing boxers now for the last 13 years, I was perscribed Naftifine, a topical but it dosn't seem to take away the itchyness , I have been using baby powder to keep the area dry and the itchyness goes away a little but its still around if i touch the area over my cloths. I was also given a oral pill fluconazole I just took it yesterday but the systoms are still around. i guess it says to give it up to 3 to 5 days. now only time will tell.
so in the mean time I am showering daily with a baby johnsons shampoo and body wash, to clean the area gently , then drying off with a towel and placing the naftifine on the area , then baby powder.
