I can only guess that it is when a person does not wash too often in the crotch area and then it becomes a little like the Brazilian rain forests, with lots of oodgies and woodgies (little creatures) that grow and prosper and then it starts to itch and the more you scratch it, the worse it gets. I can't believe you got me to say such disgusting things so early on a Sunday morning, Crispy!! I suppose the solution is to wash often and properly.

Yes, yeast infections. Crotch rot. That burning itching dripping fungus that attacks the very area we hold most dear. Honey, I think I am really horny." He gulped. "You think?" "It’s hard to say. I could be getting yeast infection. I definitely need something down there." "Probably a yeast infection," he said gloomily. "No, I think it is horniness. I want you." "Whatever you say." "I said I want you, dammit! I am longing for you! I need it bad." He sighed. "Okay, I get it." A superficial fungal infection of the groin caused by species of Trichophyton or Epidermophyton floccosum, the second most common dermatophytosis for clinical presentation. It is most common in the tropics and among males. Topical antifungals such as miconazole and clotrimazole are often prescribed. Griseofulvin is used only for severe resistant cases. Also called jock itch. You got to be more candida about the questions :)

As the common name for this condition implies, it causes itching or a burning sensation in the groin area, thigh skin folds, or anus. It may involve the inner thighs and genital areas, as well as extending back to the perineum and perianal areas. Affected areas may appear red, tan, or brown, with flaking, rippling, peeling, or cracking skin. The acute infection begins with an area in the groin fold about a half-inch across, usually on both sides. The area may enlarge, and other sores may develop in no particular pattern. The rash appears as raised red plaques (platelike areas) and scaly patches with sharply defined borders that may blister and ooze. If the rash advances, it usually advances down the inner thigh. The advancing edge is redder and more raised than areas that have been infected longer. The advancing edge is usually scaly, and very easily distinguished or well demarcated. Tinea cruris, also known as crotch rot, jock itch (American English), dhobi itch or scrot rot (British English), is a dermatophyte fungal infection of the groin region in either sex, though more often seen in men. The skin within the border turns a reddish-brown and loses much of its scale. The border may exhibit tiny pimples or even pustules, with central areas that are reddish and dry with small scales. If infected with candidal organisms, the rash tends to be redder and wetter. The skin of the penis may be involved, whereas other organisms spare the penis.

Changing your knickers at least twice a day, washing that area...hope you can, even at work and wearing only pure cotton. No problems whatsover.

it's also known as dobie itch and one will most likely have a primary fungal infection elsewhere on the body like athlete's foot. it's easily treatable, apart form the usual lamisil cream and others used to treat athlete's foot a topical ointment such as whitfield's ointment will work just as well and cost 1/3 of the price.

Meerkat gives a very good explanation. I read something like it on health24. It was actually about athletes foot. The jock itch is sometimes spread from the feet to the crotch area as underwear is being put on. They suggest you put on socks over the feet first and then put on your undies. The meds are as Meerkat explained and some of it you can get without a script, over the counter. Jock itch is not an STI. Sometimes antibiotics can also cause an imbalance and fungus takes over.
