Jock Itch

Mild case. Going to the pharmacy tmrw. Meanwhile putting on some cornstarch. Yay or nay? Read the sugar can make it worse, but also read how a lot of people used it fine.

What is the typical recovery time? Two weeks?

Thanks

P.S. Fuck the humidity in Asia during summer

I don't think pure corn starch is a good idea, go get some baby powder which has talc and other ingredients

I would recommend not using cornstarch since many types of fungus thrive on yeast. You may get temporary relief by using it, but it will most likely return two-fold.

Baby powder is the only way to go, use it for any itch especially after shaving down there.

Thanks, I'm going to get some baby powder and antifungal creme when later

The baby powder trick seems like a good idea too

Baby Powder works - but so does foot powder - which contains Talc.

As a young Army Cadet years ago, we would shove tons of foot powder down out pants - as well as Gold Bond Medicated Foot Powder. That stuff is amazing, I highly recommend it!

why would you not think of baby powder before a cooking ingredient?

If you're making broth with crotch sweat, you've got bigger issues than jock itch...
