Is my jock is healing or getting worse Over the last 6 weeks

This answer was rated:

Is my jock is healing or getting worseOver the last 6 weeks or so I have had a case of jock itch that really didn’t wanna go away. It wasn’t always itchy , but it hurt and felt prickly. Best way to describe was like peeling Velcro. For the last 2 days, I have changed to an antibacterial bar soap and have noticed the peeling sensation is gone, but there is some mild burning and itching.
I have used spornar 100mg for 1 week and 1% antifungal cream. I did previously use strong cortisone cream which I was adv to stop.Any ideas? Thanks

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

I have reviewed your picture.

Well if your peeling is reduced after taking such antibacterial bar soap spornar 100mg for 1 week and 1% antifungal cream then I would recommend to continue same treatment for 4 weeks.


Now I would recommend some self care measures like
Do cool water sitz bath with betadine solution twice a day for 5-10 minutes.

And keep the area dry and clean.
Wear loose fitted cotton clothes to prevent friction.
Take OTC Motrin and Claritin for few days.

You should start a probiotic and multivitamin supplement.

You can frequently use OTC Abzorb powder when you have excessive sweating.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
