Jock itch - tinea cruris

Hair/Nails/Skin

 

Jock itch is a common fungal infection that affects theskin of your genitals, inner thighs and buttocks. The infection is characterized by an itchy, red rash in the warm, moist areas of your body, most often your groin area.

Also called tinea cruris, jock itch is closely related to other skin conditions with similar names. Tinea refers to a type of fungus, and cruris is the Latin word for "leg." Other common tinea infections include:

  • Athlete's foot (tinea pedis). This form affects the moist areas between your toes and sometimes on the foot itself.
  • Ringworm of the body (tinea corporis). This form causes a red, scaly ring or circle of rash on the top layer of your skin.
  • Ringworm of the scalp (tinea capitis). This form is most common in children and involves red, itchy patches on the scalp, often leaving bald patches.

Jock itch gets its name from being most common in male athletes, but anyone can get the infection. It can also occur in people who are overweight or sweat a lot.

Although uncomfortable and bothersome, jock itch usually isn't serious, except possibly for people with weak immune systems. Treatment usually consists of keeping your groin area clean and dry and applying antifungal medications.

Signs and symptoms

The signs and symptoms of jock itch may include:

  • Itching and redness in your groin, including your genitals, inner thighs, buttocks and anal area

  • Burning sensation around your groin

  • Flaking, peeling or cracking skin in your groin

Jock itch can make wearing underwear or tight clothing uncomfortable. Walking or exercising may aggravate the rash and worsen your signs and symptoms.

Causes

Normally, it takes about a month for new skin cells to move from the lowest layer of your skin, where they form, to the outermost layer, where they die and scale off in flakes.

Fungal infections, such as jock itch, are caused by microorganisms that become parasites on your body. These mold-like fungi (dermatophytes) live on dead cells on the outer layer of your skin. Jock itch occurs when the dead skin cells in your groin area become too warm and moist, allowing a fungal infection to begin.

Jock itch is only mildly contagious. It can spread by sharing towels or clothing with someone who has the infection, or through direct contact or sexual intercourse.
