Common Questions and Answers about Skin rash jock itch


Avatar n tn However, steroids should not be used in the groin alone without consulting your doctor since steroids alone can make the rash of jock itch much worse. If the rash is very red and itchy, especially if it has blisters at the edge, a topical steroid such as hydrocortisone can also be applied aside from the clotrimazole cream. If this persists, it would be best to see your doctor for proper management. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar m tn After searching my symptoms (itch, rash, dry flaky skin, red) I assumed that it was jock itch. I purchased some Clotrimazole and have been using that three times daily. The medicine helps with the itch but the rash is still there and it doesn't seem to be making any progress. I have been using the cream for about a week. I am currently studying abroad in Europe and am hesitant to go to the doctor because I don't know how it will work with my insurance.
Avatar n tn i dont know if i have a heat rash or jock itch it seems to itch very little but no peeling on the skin and no redness but there is little red bumps above my pelvic area is this heat rash or jock itch?
Avatar m tn i had jock itch for years and it has left my skin reddish and scarred on my upper thigh... are there any over the counter medicines that would help my skin heal best?
Avatar m tn Antifungal medications work fine, but not overnight. You have to keep using them consistently until the problem is gone. On the bottle of an athlete's foot powder I've used, it recommends applying the stuff everyday for 4 weeks. One would hope jock itch clears up faster, though. It's equally important to prevent it from occurring again. Fungal overgrowths that cause problems like jock itch, athlete's foot, yeast infections, diaper rash, etc.
Avatar n tn can jock itch move to your penis? i have had it for months now and can only keep it under control w powder, not get rid of it. when i have sex w/my girlfriend, afterwards my penis gets red, raw and gets little cracking in the skin right under the head of my penis, some small amount of itching. has the jock itch moved to my penis or is this something else? i might add there are no sores or anything like that. it seems to heal and only get raw after sex.
Avatar m tn I am a 25 year old male with a rash in my groin region. It is in my inner thighs and has been there for almost 6 years. i am a runner and for the longest time thought of it as "jock itch". But in recent years it has become more and more painful and varying degrres of treatment have been used trying to clear it up.
Avatar m tn Though it is called jock itch, it may not itch always. Usually a reddish rash or area of darkened or tanned skin appears on penis/scrotum/groin fold/adjacent thighs. This is often accompanied by a burning or tingling sensation. Also the diagnosis of jock itch appears to be correct since the sensation responded to application of an antifungal and the rash has dried up and is becoming scaly. The treatment may take about 4-5 weeks to produce complete results.
Avatar f tn I have a rash in my groin area. Ive had jock itch for a while now, but recently ive had intensely itchy rashes on my foreskin as well. The rash is made of small bumps and lines that swell when i scrath them, and they appear to be filled with pus. The rash appears for about a week, then disappears for a week. This cycle repeats itself. When the rash on penis appears, the outer ring of my jock itch gets inflamed as well. I have never had sex, nor have i had any sexual/intimate contact.
Avatar m tn The rash had a well-defined outline and a pink center. After doing some research, I figured I would try a jock itch cream. I used Lotrimin (clotrimazole) for about a weak - which seemed to work - but the tube ran out. The next day, the rash came back. Now, it's just red with no defined edges. It's not really itchy, and I probably wouldn't have even noticed it had it not been for the oral sex.
Avatar n tn once they are gone you will have itchy itch that you cannot scratch which is a allergic reaction. and the itch will continue for a few months. it is an itch scratch itch cycle. ask your doctor about using prednizone, triamcinolone acetonide, luxiq, or clobbetasol creams. to help the itch after the scabies have been gone. along with the oral steroids they should give you a hydrocortiszone shot in the bum to prevent itchy along with a external scbies killing creme. hope this helps.
751422 tn?1265510035 hi i got ezema or at least I think I do. Got either a skin rash or jock itch on the right side of my penis and on my scrotum area. ive put blistex,noxeema, neosporin and lotrimin on it and its not working that much. is there anything I can do to stop this annnoying thing? ive been showering regularly now (havent been for a few weeks) can anyone help me?
Avatar n tn I have what I assume is a fungal infection on my inner thighs. It's a reddish-brown with clearly defined borders. I've had it before but kind of forgot about it, and recently noticed it again. The skin is slighty more scaly there than surrounding it. I just don't know that it's jock itch because there is no itching, burning or discomfort. The only symptom is the discoloration itself.
Avatar n tn If you get frequent outbreaks, you can use an antifungal cream or powder, or even corn starch or baby powder, once a day, to get rid of jock itch more permanently. You should also follow the above suggestions for keeping the skin as cool and dry as possible, and for clothing choices.

Avatar m tn I'm having trouble with similar problem. I would get tested to make sure it is a fungal infection you're dealing with. I unsuccessfully tried anti-fungal cream and all sorts of jock-itch remedies before finding out my rash wasn't fungal. I'm guessing mine could instead be psoriasis or eczema, but I'm lost at the moment.
Avatar m tn i started running about a week ago. On my third run i started feeling rubbing in my groin area from my underwear. I have run several times since this adn now i have a rash on my scrotum. red dots that are burning an uncomfortable. I search jock itch but they say it doesn't usually affect the scrotum or penis. I'm very uncomfortable right now. any ideas?
Avatar n tn Sounds like jock itch. My ex had it once and I remember it looking a lot like you describe. Try getting some antifungal spray or cream and try that.
Avatar n tn and it really itches from time to time..The area of itch skin feels a little rough than other it a jock itch or fungal infection? should i use ketoconazole shampoo on the rash? I dont have any other problems. No change in urine colour or anything other than itching. I had tinea few months back in armpit and now in stomach skin which is decreasing after putting miconazole cream.
Avatar n tn It started as a jock itch, i used anti-fungal cream for 2 months. After the first 2 weeks the jock itch marks went away, but the redness and itchiness stayed, after 2 months i gave up on anti-fungal and did some research. The scrotum skin is very absorvent compared to normal skin and anti-fungal creams can easily cause dermatitis there. So i used a weak hidrocortisone cream for about 1 month (after 2 days the itchiness was all gone!) and it was back to normal.
Avatar n tn Ok something else I don't understand is I don't experience itching with my jock itch. Just heat from the rash. Is this normal? Will rubbing alcohol eventually remove the rash?
Avatar n tn Hello, The symptoms are suggestive of Jock itch. Jock itch shows up in post-adolescent men and hormonal changes during puberty,lifestyle and heredity each play a role.Predisposing fungal disease like tines cruris may also aggravate it. Wash your groin daily and then dry thoroughly by pat drying,not rubbing. A hairdryer is useful if you have hairy groins.The damp groin is an ideal site for fungi to multiply.Also wear cotton underwears and change them twice a day.

Avatar n tn m 22 now) I looked at some pictures of jock itch in the groin which is where I have the rash and it is a perfect match from looks. I've been applying alcohol the kind you use for cuts and scrapes. I read on a google search this can make the rash go away but not sure it. For now, getting rid of the rash would be good enough for me. Something to note is that the rash did expand a very short bit down my thigh but for the past 5 months or so it hasn't expanded rather stay the same.
Avatar n tn Is there an odor associated with Jock Itch? I have what seems like a yeast-like odor that is not strong, but noticable, and I haven't read anything relating this to Jock Itch. Also...I understand the fungus Tinea Cruris is the cause, but what does it do to the skin to cause it to itch so badly? Poison Ivy was not as bad as this, and I am curious why this stuff is so itchy. Thanks a million!
