Jock Itch (Tinea Cruris)

Jock Itch (Tinea Cruris) is similar to athlete's foot and is caused by a tiny fungus that grows best in dark, damp conditions. It's a common fungus that often infects men who perspire heavily or are obese. The symptoms are chafed, itchy, or irritated skin in the groin, inner thighs, pubic or anal areas. You may have it at the same time you have athlete's foot. It usually happens when you've been perspiring heavily, during sports or hot, humid weather.
To prevent jock itch, avoid synthetic fabrics. Wear loose cotton to let perspiration evaporate and skin breathe. Never use anyone else's towels or clothes. The fungus that causes jock itch can be spread easily. Avoid rough textured clothing. An alkaline environment encourages the fungus to grow. Since most soap is alkaline (the opposite of acid), too much scrubbing with soap will make jock itch worse. Wash, but make sure to rinse all soap off your skin. Then dry well and keep the area as dry as possible. Talcum powder reduces wetness and chafing.

How Does the Immune System fight Jock Itch?

The immune system is a body wide network of cells and organs that has evolved to defend the body against attacks by foreign entities such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses.

Method of Use:

The tinea cruris fungal infection of the groin area (jock itch) is relieved by spraying the affected area using a spray bottle applicator. Mesosilver users have reported consistently good results using a spray bottle to apply Mesosilver to the infected area. Wash with hot soapy water, rinse, and dry the infected area. Spray on Mesosilver and let air dry. Perform this procedure two or more times daily. Many report noticeable results within one to two days. Difficult cases may take seven to ten days for complete remediation.
