The itching is worse in the evening and at night. The heat of the bed may also worsen the condition. Sensitivity to washing and air is also present in a few cases.

Tellurium – For Jock Itch with Intersecting Ring-Shaped Lesions

Tellurium offers a natural treatment for jock itch. It is helpful when there are intersecting ring-shaped lesions covering a large area on the skin. Small vesicles may be present along with the ring-shaped patches. The affected skin may have an offensive odor. Dryness and heat in the affected skin area are also present. A stinging sensation in the rash may be prominently present.

Sepia Succus – For Tinea Cruris with Isolated Ring-Shaped Spots on Skin

Sepia Succus is a well indicated homeopathic medicine for tinea cruris with isolated ring-shaped spots on the skin. Itching and scratching attend the lesions. However, scratching brings no relief. The affected skin area is also raw, rough, and hard. Sepia Succus is also one of the top grade homeopathic medicines for ringworm that appears every time in the spring season.

Causes of Jock Itch

Jock itch is the result of a fungal infection. It is contagious, and it spreads from direct skin to skin contact from an infected person to a healthy one. It may also spread through contact with objects contaminated with fungal microorganisms. The objects mainly include contaminated towels, clothes, etc. Using public showers raises the chances of getting jock itch. The risk factors for contracting jock itch include increased sweating, obesity, low immunity, diabetes mellitus. Jock itch mainly affects males, but females can get it too.

Symptoms of Jock Itch

The primary symptom of jock itch is a rash in the groin area, inner thighs, buttocks, and genitals. The margin of the rash is very sharp. Small fluid-filled eruptions, i.e. blisters may be seen along the sharp margins. Itching and burning of varying intensity attend the rash. In few sufferers, pain may be present in the affected skin area. In some cases, scales/flakes or cracks may be present on the affected skin area.

Self-care and Management

In case of a jock itch, one must practice good personal hygiene, keep the affected area clean and dry, opt for looser clothes in breathable fabrics like cotton, and wash all clothes after exercise or a workout.
