Jock Itch Symptoms: Itching, pain and a very distinct rash that the edges may be scaly or have bumps that look like blisters. The rash may appear on the folds of skin on your inner thighs, buttocks and groin area.
Jock itch Causes: Jock Itch is a form of ringworm, which is not actually a worm, but a topical fungal infection. It can appear anywhere on the outer layers of skin, under nails & hair. It can be easily spread in public area-showers, pool, gyms etc and anyone can get it. Sometimes a fungal infection on the skin can be a sign of a fungal infection systemically, or inside the body (yeast).
Jock Itch Conventional Treatment: Creams and lotions, both prescription and non, contains harsh chemical-so harsh that side effects are itching burring if the skin. Again, another treatment that sounds just as bad as the symptoms you are looking to cure. Treatment for fungal infections inside the body are just as harsh with the side effects being diarrhea and constipation.
Jock Itch Natural Alternative Treatment: Three Sisters Herbal’s Wicked Magic Salve contains the power of natural anitfungals-Grapefruit Seed Extract and Tea Tree Oil, also other soothing and healing herbs, all without the nasty side effects. If a fungal infection is internal (yeast) Three Sisters Herbal’s Antifungal Tincture can work on the entire system, taken orally it treats yeast overgrowth from the mouth, thru the entire digestive tract. Remember that Jock Itch is highly communicable and a little prevention goes a long way to not reinfect-wash clothes and towels after every use, with white vinegar in the wash cycle. If you also have athletes foot, treat that the same time. Put your socks on before your underwear to help prevent spreading of the fungus from your feet to your groin area. And dry your feet off last after showering. At home spray shower and tubs with white vinegar after every use to not pass infection to other family members, and to not reinfect yourself. While treating any fungal infection, it is highly recommended to compliment the treatment with a good probiotic, to help the body balance out the healthy micro organisms.
