Step 1: Identify jock itch Identify jock itch: an itching sensation found in warm and damp places on the body. You'll see skin irritation and ring-shaped rashes. Step 2: Dry the area Dry the areas where you're experiencing jock itch. Sweating is usually the main cause. Tip Use a blow dryer on the cool setting to dry the area. A towel doesn't always dry it completely and excessive wiping can cause more irritation. Step 3: Apply antifungal product Apply an antifungal skin cream, spray, or powder -- available at drug stores -- to the infected area. Step 4: Use a home remedy Use a home remedy -- such as antidandruff shampoo, tea tree oil, or a garlic and honey mixture -- as a complement to your over-the-counter antifungal product. Step 5: Pay attention to your diet Pay attention to what you eat. Greasy foods and refined carbohydrates increase the chances of a jock itch breakout. Eating fruits, vegetables, and garlic helps keep skin healthy. Did You Know? Did you know? Jock itch is also known as ringworm because of the shape of the rash, not because it's caused by a worm.
