GAYBIGMACHODUDE1972 saidWhat eco friendly, nontoxic, drugfree and chemical free treatments are there for skin rashes, jock itch and other skin problems? How do you know if you have jock itch or just a heat rash or a skin rash on your privates?
Sometimes only a doctor really knows, as jock itch doesn't always actually itch, just appears as a rash. My own GP wasn't certain, just took the approach of prescribing an anti-fungal cream to see what would happen, since it was harmless to try. I'd already tried common skin lotions, and over-the-counter jock itch remedies without success, and if the cream didn't work then I'd have gotten a referral to a dermatologist. But the anti-fungal cream did get rid of it.
I'm not sure what you mean regarding "chemical free" treatments. Almost everything for jock itch is gonna be chemical, unless you mean some natural plant remedy. Only thing I know off-hand is aloe vera, for general skin irritations and sunburn, but that's usually sold in some kind of chemical blend. I have seen bottled "pure" aloe vera, but in the grocery section of the supermarket, not sure if approved, sterile & safe for topical application on humans.
You might try what I did, starting with ordinary skin lotions, which would help with a heat rash. If that fails, try the specific off-the-shelf things for jock itch. If that doesn't work and you want to avoid the doctor, ask a pharmacist, who may be able to give you something stronger from behind the counter. The next step really should be the doctor.
To avoid it in the future make sure to change your underwear and gym shorts daily. And avoid storing shorts, jocks & undies in a gym bag between unwashed wearings, or piled together in a locker, especially not leaving them damp for long periods, nor put in contact with your unwashed socks.
In fact, I've read claims that because fungus can survive in a washing machine you should not wash socks together with underwear & towels. And the machine itself should periodically get an empty run with chlorine bleach added. If you've actually got jock itch it's also been recommended that you should discard your underwear & jocks and buy new.
