Customer Question

My name is ***** *****. For the past 2 weeks, my arms, stomach, back and scrotum have been extremely itchy. Scrotum also has been scaly. Ive had jock itch in the past, and normally would Lotrimin powder spray. That isn't working and have tried just about everything.. clotrimazole, miconazole nitrate tea tree oil. EVERYTHING!
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

This is Dr. David

it sounds like you need prescription antifungal treatments.

bad jock itch can take 6-8 weeks of continuous twice daily antifungal powder like nystatin powder and antifungal creams like ketoconizole to treat bad jock itch

also you might benefit from oral fluconizole antifungal creams.

you have to see a doctor to get prescription treatment for your fungal infection.

let me know if you have other questions.
