Jock Itch Treatment

What is Jock Itch?

Jock itch is a fungal infection that generally forms in moist, damp, high-friction areas of skin. Athlete’s foot, ringworm, and jock itch are all forms of a similar fungal infection, and can be spread through contact. While quite common, these skin infections can be uncomfortable, embarrassing, and even painful. Symptoms typically consist of redness, itching, and inflammation. Fortunately, relief is possible with a consistent jock itch treatment regiment.

Commonly affected areas are between the toes, around the groin, under the breasts, and similar areas of the body where the skin rubs together. Fungal infections may be found in folds of skin, or any portion of skin exposed to high friction as well. Intense activity can mean more friction and moisture (sweat), which can collect in areas of the body prone to fungal infections.

Wellness Tip

Shower immediately after a workout. The perfect storm for a fungal infection is moisture and friction; so avoid the potential for an infection by keeping those areas clean and dry.

Seeing Jock Itch

Many fungal infections appear on the topmost layer of skin and are generally identified easily. The infected skin may appear red, blistered, and/or chafed. Also, the affected area will likely be itchy and uncomfortable.

Different types of fungal infections have different symptoms, but all can be healed by an alcohol-free antifungal cream like Triple Paste AF. These treatments help to protect, soothe, and heal the affected skin while blocking excess moisture that could intensify the symptoms.

Jock Itch Symptoms

  • Itching, chafing, or burning

  • Blistering, oozing, or bleeding

This is a fungal infection around the genitals, inner thighs, and/or buttocks. It’s common in athletes, hence the name. Jock itch can be red, itchy, and appear as ring-shaped rashes.  A more severe case can include scaling, cracking, peeling, and bleeding when not treated.

Ringworm is a contagious fungal infection of the skin and scalp. It can be passed from person to person by skin-to-skin contact or contact with an infected object, like a wrestling mat.  It’s typically scaly, red, irritated, and itchy.

How To Prevent Jock Itch

1

Be mindful of the clothing you wear and how often you do laundry. Fungal infections can develop more easily when wearing form-fitting, sweat-blocking clothing and shoes. Loose, breathable clothing and dry shoes will help prevent fungal infections!

2

Shower immediately after a workout. Moisture and friction are a recipe for fungal infections, so clean off as soon as possible. If an immediate shower isn’t available, rinse and dry off then change into clean, dry clothing.

3

Use a fungal infection treatment before your workout. If you tend to sweat, be mindful of the areas of your body where skin meets skin. To prevent chafing and sweat build-up, apply a jock itch treatment like Triple Paste AF to these areas before exercising.
