Jock Itch Sex

By adulthood, having mild itchy genitals at least once can be a typical experience. Most of such itch goes away in a day or two and does not require much attention. However, if the irritation continues for a longer time, there is a chance that it could be a jock itch. A jock itch, aka tinea cruris, is a fungal infection that causes itchy red rashes on your skin. You can contract a jock itch through infected clothing and exposure to moist areas where the fungus is most active. Another common medium of getting the jock itch is through sex.

The penis, upper thighs, vagina, and anus are the most vulnerable regions for jock itch. In case you have a jock itch, sex can be very uncomfortable. Wearing tight pants, using chemical soaps and creams, and sweats can enhance the irritation and make it painful. When it comes to the spreading of jock itch, sex provides direct skin-to-skin contact. Though it is not dangerous, the chance of infection becomes very high. Locations like public showers and steamy locker rooms are the ideal places for the fungus to thrive and infect.

If you have a jock itch, sex is not safe for you as it becomes easier for you to contract other STDs. Use of protections can become futile since with jock itch, sex can spread STDs through open scratch marks. It is more prevalent in men, but even women can get it. If the situation becomes worrisome, you can visit your doctor for consultation and treatment. Usually, your doctor can detect the infection by looking and will proceed with immediate medication.

With proper treatment, the jock itch can go away within one to two weeks. To avoid such irritation, maintaining good hygiene and avoiding sex with an infected partner is vital.  Other beneficial steps include wearing breathable garments and using dried towels.
