#Jock Itch

Friends today I am discussing about another skin problem known as TINEA CRURIS (JOCK ITCH) Tinea Cruris (Jock Itch) (Jock Itch, Groin Ringworm). Tinea cruris, commonly referred to as jock itch, is a fungal infection in the groin area. It affects mostly adult men. It's caused by a type of fungus called dermatophytes. It grows in a circle on your skin and often looks like a ring. Due to irritation, the skin becomes red. Some people think the infection looks like there is a worm under the skin. Because of this, this infection is often referred to as "ringworm," although no worm is actually involved. The fungi are commonly found on the skin surface and nails and are usually quite harmless. Under certain conditions, however, they can multiply dramatically, causing irritation and surface tissue damage. You don't have to be athletic to get jock itch. Infections caused by these organisms go by the medical name tinea. Tinea pedis is athlete's foot; tinea capitis is ringworm of the scalp. Jock itch is tinea cruris, from the Latin word for leg. They are all caused by dermatophytes - only the infected area differs. Classic jock itch affects the inner thighs, groin, and lower buttocks, not the genitalia themselves. If the scrotum is inflamed, it's probably due to a different yeast condition called candidiasis, and a physician should be consulted. Causes Dermatophytes like to grow on skin that's moist and warm and thrive in areas where skin comes into contact with other skin, such as the groin or between the toes. Overweight men are more likely to develop jock itch if they sweat a lot or have folds of touching skin. Tight clothing and hot, humid weather are other risk factors. Men who play sports and use a male athletic guard are particularly prone to tinea infection. Sweaty equipment left in a locker makes an ideal environment for tinea to grow. The fungi can live on towels, floors, carpets, and toilet seats. Sharing towels, combs. Homeopathic Medicines for Jock Itch Graphites – Top Grade Homeopathic Medicine for Jock Itch Graphites is a natural medicine for jock itch. The symptoms to use Graphites include rawness in the groins and inner thigh. A glutinous discharge may be present in the affected area. In some cases, cracks on the affected skin are present. The groin area may also be susceptible to touch. Warmth seems to worsen the complaint. Sulphur – For Jock Itch with Intense Itching and Burning Sulphur is another effective homeopathic medicine for fungal infection of the skin. It is useful when there is excessive itching and burning in the affected skin area. 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. Suppression of jock itch with ointments in the past is another indication to begin treatment for jock itch with homeopathic medicine Sulphur. Silicea – For Jock Itch with Increased Sweating Silicea is a natural remedy for skin fungus and is useful when excess sweating is present with the rash in a given case of jock itch. The sweat smells foul. Itching is present mainly during the daytime and evening. Sensitivity to the cold atmosphere may be markedly present. Apart from jock itch, Silicea also works well in cases of athlete’s foot (tinea pedis). 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.
