What cream do I use for jock itch?

any anti fungal should work for a normal case of jock itch, as the other lady said lotrimin in good, also lamisil, or any of the own brand equivalentsWhat cream do I use for jock itch?
they sell it at all your drug stores, i believe its called Lotrimin but ask the pharmacist.

if thats not otc....If you have some itching and redness in the groin area, try to keep the area dry, exposed to air as much as possible, and avoid tight clothes on the area. These measures may relieve the problem.

Many antifungal medications are available without prescription. They come in cream, liquid spray, ointment, and powder forms. Some people may develop an allergic reaction to the medication, so stop using them if your rash seems worse.

Tolnaftate (Tinactin, Aftate) and undecylenate (Cruex, Desenex) are well-known, effective medications. The powder form is also useful as a drying agent. These medications are not effective against candidal infections.

Clotrimazole (Fungoid, Lotrimin, Mycelex) and miconazole (Micatin, Monistat Derm) are also available over-the-counter and are effective against all fungi.
