This one might be a little embarrassing because we’re going to be talking about the areas in your body that almost no one likes to talk about. We’ll be talking about your gron, more precisely about jock itch, which is a very annoying infection of the groin.
This condition, although it’s not dangerous in any way is extremely annoying because it itches like mad. I am sure you don’t want to sit there scratching your privates all the time, do you? But, let’s start from the beginning.
So, what does jock itch look like?
There is pretty much just one thing to say about the looks of jock itch and that one thing is, it’s red. If you see a red patch around your groin area or even on the upper part of your thigh, that’s jock itch. If that red area itches madly and you can’t help but scratch it all the time (which, of course, you shouldn’t) than you better get some good treatment ready or it’s going to annoy the heck out of you.
Now, as i mentioned above, this condition is not dangerous. It’s not going to make you infertile or anything like that, what’s more, it’ll most likely clear out after a week to two weeks, but, unless you want to keep your hand in your pants all the time, you need to treat it.
Obviously, as embarrassing as it may seem, you need to see a doctor before you start putting anything on your groin, but you can also get some over the counter type of stuff such as Fungoid.
Again, if you think you can survive through the symptoms, then maybe it’s a good idea to think about investing the cash into something else, but if not, then an anti fungal ointment will do.
Before I go, I need to tell you one more thing. Although, it’s mostly men that have this condition, it’s important to know that women, children, older people and pretty much anything with a groin can get it.
Also, if you do decide to go to a doctor, just remember that they’ve seen it all already. What I am trying to say here is that there is absolutely nothing to be stressed out about. They are doctors so don’t feel embarrassed. It’s really not a big deal.
An itchy groin is annoying. I know. That’s why I wanted to share the tips above as well as tell you what does jock itch look like, so that you know what’s happening when suddenly you feel that itch. The bottom line is that it really is not a huge thing, so don’t worry about it.
