i went to a doctor about the groin irritated skin and he prescribed bactrician zinc ointment or something
after a week of use it went away but then my scrotum started itching and it too had irritated skin that hurts whenever i sweat, so it stings
people have recommended baby powder to keep the area dry, and vaseline to moisutirize the area in case it is dry skin
my question is that, which one should i use, can i use both, and should i still use the bacitrician zinc ointment even though its past a weeks a time since my doctor told me to stop using it?I have a jock itch, does it mix with either vaseline, baby powder or bactrician zinc anti ointment cream?
don't put Vaseline on it.get a powder for jock itch,or anti fungal spray.I have a jock itch, does it mix with either vaseline, baby powder or bactrician zinc anti ointment cream?
Go back to what the doc had you use. Never use vaseline on any kind of rash. It does not moisturize, but is rather like putting a coating of thick oil on the rash and it will cause severe itching. Avoid powder as well because it can irritate the area even more. Do not use any kind of moisturizer on jock itch. It will only make things worse. Use what the doc gave you. That's the best and smartest way to go.
You need antifungal cream. You should be able to buy from pharmacy
I used to work construction and frequently had this problem. Baby powder worked everytime. I think Vaseline actually makes the problem worse because it holds in moisture.
yeah go get some lamisil jock itch creme the stuff will get rid of the itch and in a couple days it should stop burning when you sweat... i had the same problem and i tried using baby powder but honestly it burned when i put it on, and although it was dry it didn't help.
its from not washing yourself %26gt;_%26gt; hope it falls off
You mix powder with vaseline and you are going to have a mess. You need to go back to your doc and get something stronger, like a fungicide.
Or you could wear a maxi pad. Just kidding.
