Jock itch (tinea cruris)
This is a fungal infection that often affects the groin and inner thighs. It’s common in obese or people with excessive sweating
Signs and Symptoms
- Redness in the groin and inner thighs.
- Burning or persistent itchiness
- Flaky, peeling or scaly skin

Some jock itch resolves with an over-the-counter cream. After initial OTC treatment and home remedy failure, Callondoc recommends prescription-strength medication to treat the infection
