Can I Have Sex When I Have Jock Itch?

August 19, 2019

Thanks for tuning in. We’re talking about
a bit of a sensitive topic today, so I’m going to talk about jock itch and having sex with
your partner. Might be a bit uneasy for some guys to talk about this kind of topic, but
I’m going to talk about it anyway. In the early days of my practice, I worked
with a medical practitioner, a gay medical practitioner, in fact, to be honest with you,
but I had a great relationship with this guy in the clinic and I saw lots of different
kinds of patients. I saw lots of straight males. I saw lots of gay males. I saw lots
of lesbians and straight women, but the thing is, I talked with a lot of patients about
sex. I’m one of these practitioners that talk to their patients about everything. Sexual relations is an important part of our
relationships with people, whether we are straight or gay. I don’t care. I don’t look
at a person’s sexuality. I look at the person, to be honest. Now to be honest with you, I’ve
dealt with a lot of people with STDs in the past, with venereal warts, with Chlamydia,
with Herpes, but also with Candida yeast infections. I can tell you something. If you’ve got jock
itch as a guy or a vaginal infection as a woman, there’s one thing I want you to really
think about. It’s easy to pass a Candida yeast infection from one person to another. It is
possible. We can’t really say that a yeast infection of the private area is a sexually
transmitted disease, but it can be transmitted sexually. It certainly can, and I’ve seen
this with many of my patients in the past. If you’re a guy and you have jock itch and
you’ve got a girlfriend or a wife or a partner and you’re a bit worried about it, then you
really need to take precautions because you can move this tinea infection from one person
to another. It certainly can happen. I’m talking about tinea cruris or jock itch. It can happen. It’s not easy to move like toenail fungus
from one person to another unless you’re doing some unusual things, but you can certainly
pass a genital yeast infection from one person to another. It can be done, and I’ve heard
it done. I’ve talked to many patients who’ve moved these infections from one person to
another, and it’s not a pleasant thing to do. What do you do? Do you put on a condom? Is
it going to make any difference if you’ve got a yeast infection in the rectal area or
the scrotum, do you think a condom is going to help? Probably not. Oral sex probably is
not quite the same as having sex in other ways, genital sex, but if you’ve got jock
itch, especially if it’s really bad, you need to be pretty good with hygiene and think carefully
what you’re doing here because you can move these infections across. My recommendations are if you’ve got quite
bad jock itch is to try to clear it up as much as you can, and take precautions when
you’re having sexual intercourse because you can move these infections across. Try to do
the right thing by your partner. Try to improve your gastrointestinal health and also your
local health in that region. You can read a lot more in Candida Crusher
about how to avoid transmission of a jock itch infection from one person to another,
and it’s certainly possible to do. It may be a bit more difficult in casual sex, but
if you’re in a committed relationship like I am, think about your partner more carefully.
Be open and honest with your partner. Talk about these sort of things, and make sure
you get the right kind of treatment. Go to and look at the treatment
and please do my yeast infection quiz. I want you to nail this thing. It’s not fair on your
partner if you don’t talk about jock itch, and you transfer it to your partner, whether
your partner is male or female. You really need to be serious about this and get on top
of it. Jock itch can be fixed up, and if you follow
my treatment methods, you can nail this thing in three to six months. I’ve helped a lot
of patients just like you to nail this thing. It’s an awful condition. I had it myself and
it can be nailed. So take my advice. Go to
Do my quiz and do the right thing by your partner if you’re in a sexual relationship. Thanks for tuning in.

    No. If you had sex. The jock itch will spread to your partner. It's still contagious. And your own rash will get alot worst. I recommend you to go see a doctor. And they will prescribe you a Clotrimazole. But make sure you have insurance. So you don't have to pay a $75 for one antifungal cream. Have a nice day!

    I used isopropyl to cure my jock itch, (Candida) infection. One has to be smart how you use it, for it stings on first application. Once the sting has occurred isopropyl can be applied without a sting at all. I've discovered I am allergic to steroids. Steroids is what a GP will prescribe to reduce swelling and redness. Because I am allergic to steroids it makes the jock itch ten times worse. You should insist your GP tests you for steroid allergy. I put steroid cream on my legs inner thigh. I have an awful large red, swollen patch there. There was nothing there before. Isopropyl does kill the infection. A man's sensitive area's are his privates and his ears. Take care here most of all. Regards. U.K..
