What is Jock Itch?

As the name suggests, jock itch is a condition affecting us where we want it least. Jock itch specifically affects the groin, buttock and inner thigh area, usually as an itching, burning pain and an associated rash.

Jock itch is a fungal infection which occurs when fungus grows in warm moist areas, and can be triggered by friction from clothes or sweating. It can also be transmitted by contaminated towels or spread from other infected body parts, such as the feet.

Jock itch can be a socially embarrassing condition and it is recommended to treat at the first sign of symptoms. If left untreated it can easily spread to other parts of the body. Treatment is easy and effective.
