Jock Itch Symptoms:
One of the main symptoms of jock itch is the rash that appears when the problem occurs. This rash is very itchy and appears like a red ring with a scaly edge. These rashes may increase in diameter if left untreated and other symptoms may emerge as well.
- Sometimes when the rash is caused by the candida albicans fungus, these infected areas of your skin appear to glisten with wetness and are somewhat redder.
- Most of those who suffer from jock itch usually have other fungal infections in other parts of their body as well.
- If left untreated, the itch and the rash may diminish, but the different rashes may fuse together to create one big infection. The infection may also become very irritated and may sting when the skin breaks down from this infection.
- Jock itch can also bring with it burning sensations that makes it difficult to walk or makes it rather painful to wear underwear of any kind. This problem can also cause the cracking, peeling, and flaking of the skin around the groin area and around the buttocks.
