Preventing Jock-Itch

Below are some helpful tips on preventing jock-itch:

  • Complete treatment as instructed, even after symptoms disappear.
  • Minimize close contact with others until treated.
  • Keep skin dry and clean.
  • Wear loose clothing and clean cotton boxer shorts.
  • Wash athletic supporters frequently in hot water and bleach.
  • Do not share towels, shoes, clothing, hats or other personal items.
  • Make sure the person or the source of the infection gets treated.
  • Use a floor or bath cleaner that contains a fungus-combating agent.
  • If you have athlete’s foot make sure that the towel that you dried your feet with does not come into contact with other parts of your body.
  • Spray your shoes with a hospital grade disinfectant that contains Benzalchonium Chloride to combat the odors and fungus daily. Note that All Stop™ offers such a disinfectant if you can’t find it locally.
