If left untreated, it can:

  • Spread to other parts of the body
  • Cause jock itch
  • Invade and destroy the nail plates of your toenails
  • Hinder athletic performance

Symptoms include:

  • Burning, itching, cracking and scaling

Jock Itch is a fungal infection of the groin and upper thighs. Lesions caused by jock itch can extend from the crease between the inner thigh and pelvis, over the adjacent upper inner thigh, and into the anal area.

  • The penis and scrotum are seldom affected
  • Lesions usually appear as a rash with defined, elevated edges

Symptoms include:

  • Itching, chafing and burning

Ringworm lesions appear circular in shape with a raised border around the edges. Growth occurs upward and away from the site of infection; the middle of the lesion appears clear and heals as the infection spreads. Lesions may itch intensely, especially in warm weather.

People used to think an actual worm present under the skin caused ringworm. We now know it's a ring-shaped lesion produced by your body's response to advancing fungi.
