I've been suffering from jock itch for a year and I understand how wildly uncomfortable and embarrassing it can be. I got it from doing jiu jitsu every day, sitting in sweaty wet pants for hours. I have gone to three doctors trying to find a solution to all this. After spending a lot of money on OTC Meds and doctor visits, this is the regime I have found that has cured my jock itch almost immediately. 1. After I shower I blow dry the area to rid any dampness. 2. Apply apple cider vinegar 3 times daily. Dilute it with water if you've been scratching as it will burn but lessen symptoms almost immediately.
A big mistake I made was applying baby powder constantly trying to keep my area dry. I was very wrong. DO NOT DO THIS. Look at the ingredients of anything you apply to make sure there is no corn starch. The fungus feeds off the corn starch and it will make it worse or make it comeback. As a lady, this has been the most embarrassing year of my life. I hope this helps you.

Once again, apple cider vinegar is just the most amazing remedy. Apply neat ACV to the infected skin and surrounding area. It may sting a little - if it is too harsh, dilute the ACV with a little water, but it is best to try to use it undiluted. Do not rinse or wipe it off. The itching will stop almost immediately. Apply it two or three times a day. If you can only do it once, that is OK but it will take longer to heal. Try to apply it at night before you go to bed. Depending on the infection it will be better in a couple of days. Continue the treatment for at least week after it seems to be fully healed, as the fungus is still in the skin and will otherwise recur

For me, apple cider vinegar was a miracle cure for yeast infections. I apply it neat directly onto any infection on the skin. By the next day the infection is much improved, within a few days it has gone. Remember that with skin and nail infections the yeast is deeply embedded, and you must continue using it on the skin for at least a couple of weeks, or the infection will recurr. Internally, I have drunk ACV diluted according to the instructions above. Again, I have felt better almost immediately. Combine ACV with a sensible, low sugar diet. I had candida symptoms for many years, and apple cider vinegar was the key remedy in my recovery
