    Salt water. Better to just swim in the actual ocean but can also make your own I guess.

    Dude, just see your doctor or Google Jock Itch. Either will give you better advice than a forum on realjock.

    Persistent fungal problems are usually a sign of candidiasis, which is a bigger systemic chronic problem that can't be cured with powder and cream. There are lots of books and articles written on it, as well as powerful drugs that can be quite damaging to internal organs. Alternative therapies are often better as they address diet and lifestyle for a long term solution.

    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.

    Baby powder works wonders in the nether regions to keep things dry if you sweat a lot. As for blue ballls, a good rule of thumb is IF you're going to start having sex (even if it's masterbating) just be sure you finish. icon_eek.gif

    Maybe there is a hypo-allergenic powder on the market that would work.

    I've tried herbal remedies but none have worked for me. I've even used Indian ayurveda herbs with no help except smelly outcomes. I've found when I have a real bad skin rash that cortisone cream just isn't taking care of it, I rub in some of that clear hand sanitizer. For some funny reason it clears the rash up and takes away the itch. I may be wrong but it has worked. I don't think doctors would want people to use it though since it would take away money from the pharmacies. I have eczema on my scalp and waist pretty much for life. Spray on apple cider vinegar and water mixture for a temporary relief also. Doesn't always take all the itch away.

    Corn starch is a great alternative, as is baking powder. Trimming or shaving down there may also help.

    If you have skin problems, go to a dermatologist, and at least get their opinion. You have a right to refuse any treatment you don't want.

    If your skin is that sensitive then have you considered a casual connection with laundry detergent? I had that problem in northern winters, when low indoor humidity would make me sensitive to Tide HE liquid detergent.

    I like Tide for its cleaning properties, and could use it in the summer, but I believe it was the enzymes that caused me irritation and rashes in the winter, when I'd have to switch to a milder detergent, like All liquid. I also selected the extra rinse option on the front-loader washer. I never have the problem using regular Tide now in humid Florida, but I believe there are detergents that are hypo-allergenic. Maybe worth a try, it certainly couldn't hurt for one bottle.
