Jock Itch: Causes, Symptoms & Treatment by Expert Eric Bakker

August 18, 2019


Hi there, Eric Bakker, naturopath, author
of Candida Crusher. Thank you for tuning into my video today. Today, we’re going to talk about men’s yeast
infections, particularly jock itch or itch around the men’s private parts, around the
scrotum, around the penis, around those areas. This is a condition I see quite frequently
in males. A condition that drives a lot of guys crazy. In fact, I’ve had two cases in
the last two days. One a 44-year-old male not far from where I live here in New Zealand
and another guy in his late 40s from Wellington, which is the capital of New Zealand. Both
of these cases are quite similar. This is going to be quite an interesting video, particularly
for males who’ve got itch in their groin region and have had no resolution. Let’s start with this 44-year-old guy. It’s
quite an interesting case and many men will be able to relate to this in particular. This
guy had an itch that started about a year ago, and it just started around his belt line.
He’s a hydraulic person, so he’s an engineer that deals with hydraulics and repairing trucks
and things like that. This guy went to his doctor; he had a bit
of an itch around the belt line, which quickly spread to the groin region. The doctor had
a look at this skin rash and did a biopsy and said, “You’ve got contact dermatitis.”
He sent this man away with a bunch of creams. I’ve just made some case notes here. This
patient came back to the doctor in three weeks and the condition was not improved. So the patient got sent to a skin specialist,
called a dermatologist. The patient then got told by the dermatologist it was scabies,
which is a mite infection. Again, more creams were prescribed. And again, the same thing,
patient came back to the specialist, wasn’t going away with the creams, this time went
to another specialist. And this specialist said it was psoriasis.
Quite interesting. This doctor gave strong drugs, steroids, which really knocked the
patient around quite a lot. The patient improved but wasn’t interested in taking steroids and
the patient then went to another doctor. This is doctor number four now. And this doctor
said, “You’ve got a fungal skin rash.” Finally, we got the correct diagnosis. But what did
the doctor do? He put this man on antibiotics, which I find quite interesting. Antibiotics
are not something one would generally give for a fungal rash that he or she has diagnosed
as a fungal rash. They will normally give an anti-fungal drug, but in this case, the
doctor decided to give a penicillin based antibiotic. And the condition exploded and
now it went all over his torso, upper back, neck, around the ears, scalp, all over. I’ll call him Gary. Gary said a few days after
starting treatment, he had a shower and his whole body blew up in a terrible skin rash.
Since then, he’s been to about 14 different people. You’re looking at a guy that’s been
to about 20 practitioners all up with no resolution. Interesting case. Upon examination of the patient, I had no
doubt in my mind that it’s a Candida fungal skin infection of the groin and various parts
of the body. I found it interesting that nobody offered Gary any advice regarding his diet
and lifestyle. Even the natural practitioners he went to offered only a small amount of
advice here. My instruction to Gary was to wash the genital
region, particularly, twice per day with a good tea tree oil based soap and also to use
a water-soluble tea tree oil to wash the private area and to spot treat the tough areas with
tea tree oil. This was to be done at least twice per day. I also recommended to Gary
to go out and buy about 20 pairs of new cotton boxer shorts and to put on new underwear at
least twice per day. This is very important if you’re a guy with a fungal yeast infection
is to maintain very good hygiene. Change your clothing often. A couple of tips for you are try not to hop
in Jacuzzis or hot spas. They’re not a very good idea because you’ll warm the body up
too much. Try to change underclothing frequently and wear loose clothing, particularly cotton
clothing. Try to be careful with intimate relations with your partner. Maintain strict
hygiene. And make sure your partner also is aware and probably goes on an anti-fungal
regime as well. You can read a lot more of these tips in Candida
Crusher in Chapter 4, there’s a section called a Quick Start Guide. There’s a nice section
there for guys on how to get rid of the jock itch problem. Gary’s going to beat this skin infection in
about three to four months. I feel so sorry for Gary because Gary said he’s got a friend
with similar circumstances. The other patient who’s 47, however, is suicidal.
This man phoned me up in tears. His wife had left him. His groin rash is so bad. He’s eating
far too many sweet foods. He can’t control it. His business is in ruins. It’s wrecking
his life. If you thought yeast infections were only something that involved females,
think again, because there are a lot of guys out there with fungal skin infections that
really have ruined lives because of this terrible problem. The problem cannot be solved purely by dietary
means. I’m telling you now; the problem cannot be solved purely by local means, by treating
the skin. And the problem cannot be solved purely by lifestyle means. The problem has
to be solved by doing different things and combining a proper treatment focused on the
local area and systemic treatment. Also addressing underlying stress-related issues which a lot
of guys suffer from. Gary and this other male are both beer drinkers.
Obviously, beer has to go. You cannot keep drinking beer when you’ve got a yeast infection.
Gary likes chocolate. And I find many men with a yeast infection will have a sweet tooth
or like beers or like some type of a sweet food. These things really need addressing.
You need to take these foods away from the yeast. When a male’s had jock itch for a while, they’ll
also have dysbiosis and leaky gut. These are terms I’ll go into in other videos, but they’ll
have a whole raft of problems. And the longer they’ve had this problem for, the worse these
other problems escalate. And when they’ve had them for a considerable period of time,
they can also develop bad anxiety and depression. And in some cases, many even commit suicide
with jock itch. It’s terrible. I suffered jock itch very bad
in my 20s. I could really get no help from the GP. The doctor offered me little help
apart from creams. The naturopath really paid lip service to the treatment and didn’t treat
it strong enough. You can really crush this condition if you’re serious about it and make
sure you make changes on those levels I just mentioned. Keep reading my articles on yeastinfection.org.
If you’re a guy and want to beat this condition, buy my book, Candida Crusher. You’ll find
it at candidacrusher.com. Keep an eye on my YouTube videos and also please do my online
course. I’ve got an online course starting any day now. There is a free Candida shopping
guide handout you’ll get as a bonus. It’s about a 15-page free document for signing
up, and I think you’ll find it quite helpful when you go shopping. Read my articles on the home page of yeastinfection.org
in terms of men’s yeast infections because you can definitely crush this condition. You
do not have to suffer with this condition for years like many of my male patients or
like I personally suffered with. I hope this video has been of some use to
you today. Thank you very much.

    Hi Doc,

    You said before that one of your clients had this "Jock Itch" spread upon his upper torso and neck. 

    I have the "Jock Itch" for about a week and half – not sure how I got it but I really want it gone. I bought this "Clotrimazole and Hydrocortisone Cream" to treat the infection and it worked to stop the irresistible itching for about 2 days. I apply it right after I shower, morning and night – it seems to work for the itching but later in the day I experience minor itching.

    I forgot to mention leading back to what you said about your client experiencing upper body itching. I also now have that for about 4 days after I got infected with the jock itch. It's all over my chest, belly, upper back, and my neck. I thought it was just a hygiene issue that was not related to the Jock Itch and would soon subside after a few showers but it seems to be getting worse. I am very itchy around my whole belly and now relised it has made an appearance with under my arm pits. When I itch it, they sometimes pop like a normal pimple would except theres no puss, rather just blood from the tearing of the skin due to my scratching. The spots are tiny much like mosquito bites..

    Could you please tell me what I can do as I have only been using the cream treatment for 3 days and I don't really know if its working as it says discontinue use after 7 days unless told by a doctor – so i thought I would be experiencing my body to be atleast at a stage of healing but it doesn't seem that way.

    My jock itch looks to be a brown appearance on my skin (the part where it used to itch a lot on my left and right thigh right next to the testicle sack) but now i just get these small sized lumps when i get itchy – much like the lumps people get when their body shows an allergic reaction.

    Could you please explain to me how i could treat and defeat this infection? I didn't really understand what you meant with the Tea Tree Oil – do i just use that and keep applying it as you instructed and it should over time heal itself without any other medication treatments?  How long does it usually take to start noticing a difference of improvements as I know you understand I want to get rid of this ASAP

    Hi, thanks for your helpful videos. Is it possible to have this groin rash without having the itchiness? Also, can it cause a smell because since I've had this rash I've also had a really strong smell from my genitals which I cannot get myself, but people have said smells of masturbation. People can apparently get this from a few feet away. Needless to say this has made me a virtual recluse for the last decade. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi, please advise!

    I been having this annoying itching on both side of my balls, (not on my testicles directly) … it stays moisture (wet) a lot of times. The itching is irritating … it is been like this for months, and I didnt see my GP as I feel embarrassed!!  I do not have any skin rash or spots or anything to be seen in terms of symptoms. 

    So, not sure what cream to use …

  • Reply JohnPacNW October 24, 2014 at 10:03 am

    Hi,  I have had what I thought was genital eczema for about 5 years now.  Have had eczema on other areas for about twenty years.  Just recently found out about candida overgrowth and realized this might be what I have.  Right now I am awaiting a stool sample result to confirm.  It seems like my symptoms are much worse at night and for the last three or so months I have been having outbreaks most nights.  Also when I shower it seems to get worse.  This prevents me from wanting to shower regularly.  It has been so bad lately that I have not been able to work for about 3 months now and am running out of money.  I am very down and do not feel like myself these days.  I have eliminated all sugars and starches from my diet for the last 2 weeks.  I mainly eat green vegetables and meat.   Do you have any advice that could help my symptoms so I can handle going back to work while I investigate the cause of my issue?  If I shower 2 times a day like you suggest, how long until the aftermath of those showers is tolerable?  Thank you.

    Hello,

    I think I might have jock itch, but it is not on my balls or groin. It is on my gooch near my anus. I'm embarrassed and ashamed to say I've had it for years. And lately it's been itching like crazy mostly at nights and mornings. I wake up feeling itchy and when I scratch it is sweaty. I'm losing my mind and life over this. Always in a bad mood. I'm too embarrassed and broke to go to a clinic. I've tried abreva but it still continues.
    Do you have any suggestions? Any help or advice is welcomed.

    It's important to strike a balance between dryness and moisture. Some guys wash so frequently and powder up that they might actually end up drying out the skin. Using Man1 Man Oil, a penis lotion, that sinks into the skin will keep the right amount of moisture there.

    I've had jock itch for years and I've tried natural cures and chemicals of all sorts topically – none of them worked for me

    But a year ago when I lost weight, I tried going on raw fruits and vegetables only. It took a while to get rid of all the gas caused by the fiber. But I could see the fungus gradually fading day by day as I abstained from just about everything on the American plate

    I then went for a few days of fasting on water, and the jock itch was almost gone to the point I couldn't see it.

    But when I began eating anything other than raw fruits and vegetables such as dried fruit, nuts and cooked potatoes and other things, the jock itch came back. Jock itch thrives on junk foods and a weak immune system

    So I think jock itch is something to do with your gut area.

    I think cleaning the colon out with water(like fasting and colonoscopy/enemas do) has a big impact.

I am tring to follow higienic, nutritional and life stile advices to cure Candida. Now i see i could be suffering from that, most doctors will say i have fungus, and prescribe medications and that is it.
    Also, i am from South America and have no access to Candida Especific Suplements.

    Also there are too few specialists and books on this subject in my coutry.(Brasil)

    experienced in this matter. I will try to follow the advices and crush
    this condition.

    But i am not leaving the traditional medicin treatment with fluconazole , zinc
    cream, , i am just iniciating the naturopath way now. just experimenting
    with oils(coconut, garlic, oregano, tea tree) and nutritional and
    lifestile changes.

    I am taking these oils and products on minimal dosage because i am just beginnig them.  Its like 3 grams coconut oil a day, 3 cloves
    of Garlic a day, very tiny oregano oil i found very strong, and eating coconut
    flour, green banana flour, sugar free yogurt, 
    Probiotics, Pure water.

    Also keeping my bath
    and badroom clothes clean.  Taking 1 to 2
    showers a day. Abstinence of sex. Not sweating or goint to the sun.

    I think i need something topical, my skin in that region is still burning. Clotrimazole or cetoconazole will do the trick?

    Do you think i will be cleared this time?

    I've actually been wondering about this for quite sometime. I've been suffering from excessive itching of my scrotum for over 3 years, and have been pretty reluctant to speak to a doctor about it. I'm not sure what it is, but my testicles have been getting real cold quite often, really itchy to the point where I scratch and cause burns and bleeding, and very sweaty. I've also recently found out that I have H. pylori in my stomach which is another huge issue. My sex drive has gone down, and it seems like my erections aren't as full as they use to be. It's really gotten to the point where it's taking a toll on my life and I don't know what to do. Could this be linked to me having H. pylori? Or is it jock itch, or maybe the fact that I haven't done anything about it for so long. Please, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi there, I 'think' I've been misdiagnosed Jock Itch, after incurring itching around my scrotum. The GP's I've seen have had a look at it and haven't seen the signs associated with Jock Itch. I'm 18, very active, and have had itchy/irritation symptoms for around 8 months. I read up that it could simply be Fordyce spots, which can be itchy (especially with me). I'm schedule to see a dermatologist soon, so hopefully I should get the right diagnosis. they're are quite a few spots which will confirm my diagnosis of Fordyce spots. Would you suggest any possible treatments, and do you agree with what I have said?
    I could really do with you're help, please reply, would be greatly appreciated.

    I dont know if i have jock itch because it does not itch it burns like sun burn

    After years of sweaty itchy balls I have finally found the answer.Only after I scratched myself raw from all the itching, did I realise that I needed to use an aerosol spray that is sold sometimes as "lanacaine spray", Hospital first aid spray or something akin to "Bactine type "of aerosol spray. Of course you spray it on liberally after showering and it will burn for a while, then it goes away. This alieviates the pain, from itching and kills the fungus outright! I watch the sugar intake and keep the spray can handy after showering. Redness dissappears, problem gone magically!
