Home remedies for jock itch

Q: I have what I thought was a simple rash or jock itch in my groin. After two weeks of using over-the-counter anti-fungal formulas, I am still itching. I haven’t had sex in three months! There is no blistering, just redness in and around my groin and scrotum. Any advice?

A: You may still only have a simple fungal infection, but might need something stronger to alleviate the infection. If it is a fungus, you could try a combination of 1/2 thyme oil and 1/2 tee tree oil, applied twice daily.

It’s also possible you may have some other infection or inflammation. It’s important that you visit your health care practitioner to rule out more serious ailments.
