I have this iching on the skin on my balls and between the cracks on both sides and on the sides on my legs between them down there! I went to my Dr.And he said is was because of me sweating? And gave me some expensive sav to put down there to stop the iching! But it works just for a while then its back! And the only thing that makes it feel better is to burn myself with hot water or my hair dryer on high heat! And it feels good until it starts burning my skin them it hurts so bad!! So something is not right?? Can anyone Help me? As I need it bad!! Because it is litteringly melting my skin..�� And still only works for a day or so then I have to do it again! This has been happening for years and years..Thanks..please...

  • Make sure you wash, rinse and dry the area thoroughly. You also may want to change your soaps to sensitive skin or hypoallergenic, this includes your laundry soaps. Skip the bleach, use white vinegar. Rinsing really well is critical to getting all of the soap off. When you can go without clothes to get light and air circulation in that area.
    You might also want to try a medicated cornstarch powder OTC like Mexsana or if you can stand it use a cotton ball with some 70% rubbing alcohol to go over those areas and then use a cool wet wash cloth to wipe off. I would not heat those areas up with the dryer because fungus’s and molds love heat.
    This maybe what is commonly known as croch rot, a fungal infection or possibly a mislearned hygiene error.
    RINSE, RINSE, RINSE.
    Treat in one manner at a time so you can discover what is or is not working for you.
    Maybe the cream/ salve the Doc gave you is an antifungal.
    I hope this helps, be blessed!

    Just found some additional info that may help.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crotch_Rot

    Please read because this covers additional candida infections that sound more like what you’re experiencing.

    Saying a prayer for you too.
