Are you compelled to scratch your groin in public? Do you have flaking and peeling? Itching and burning? A bad case of crotch rot? Then you may have the embarrassing condition known as jock itch. The good news? It's easy treated and prevented. Let VideoJug show you how.

Jock itch is caused by a fungus, and you can buy anti-fungal medications right over the counter. They typically come in spray, cream or ointment form. Just use as directed, and you should see improvement quickly. Some ingredients to look for include: Terminating, Notified, Miconazole, Clotrimazole

Step 2: Get Clean And Dry!

Still itching? Shower at least once a day, towel off thoroughly, and keep your groin dry with powder. The drier you are, the less you have to worry about a recurrence.
