Think i have Jock-itch

I have a rash or somthing where my leg meets my hip, you know where im talking about. I believe its jock-itch , because sadly to say i havent been with a girl in a whiiiile. See i make music and a while ago i got real determined with it and put aside everything including girls. so i dont think its an std or anything.

But how do i get rid of this? what medicine\cream ?? i havent tried a cream yet because i didnt know what to get. so what do i get?

this is REALLY annoying , like ill hold off itching it than after a while you just get ****** and you itch it anyway to make the itch feel better, and im sick of it. I couldve been with 2 girls tonight but , what happened ?, i said i couldnt and made up a reason, but really i didnt want no girls seeing this on my leg. and im kind of mad right now lol. I want this gone , somebody please help me! lol.

please any info\help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Re: Think i have Jock-itch

Here is a list of things to do to get rid of jock itch. I recommend you do all of them. First, keep the area real clean and DRY. Wear boxer shorts instead of tight fiting underwear. Never wear tight fitting stuff to bed at night, this includes briefs and boxer briefs. You can get tolenaftate cream to help kill it. Use Gold Bond powder to keep the area cool and dry. If you have to wear tight underwear, then load the double fabric area in the front with Gold Bond before you pull them up. Do this several times a day.

Keep us posted.

Re: Think i have Jock-itch

Jock itch is a fungus. There are many over the counter creams, sprays and ointments that will reduce it. If you have it very bad then you may need the prescription strength stuff, but most of us get over it in a hurry with lower cost otc stuff.

Re: Think i have Jock-itch

I had something like this, 2 small patches probably about the size of a penny combined on the lower side of my scrotum. It sounds funny but it was quite annoying. I think I had it for about a month (it wasn't extremely itchy, thank god) and it eventually went away on it's own. I was about to see a doctor too. So don't worry it's not that hard to get rid of (assuming what I had is the same as yours).
