And I also started putting on Gold Bond baby powder for less sweating.

I left the crate on my stoop and went in to get something and I returned to see the sanitation man put the crate into the crusher. I rushed him and caught him flush on the temple with a titanic right hand he was out cold, convulsing on the floor like an infantile retard." -Mike Tyson

keep using the cream until it goes away. if it never completely goes away, or after 2 weeks there isn't much improvement, go to a dermatologist.

Also wear bicycle style underpants. Non of that skimpy brief stuff when you're working out. You want some cotton between the rubbing parts."Adapt and overcome."

If jock itch don't go away in a couple of days you got something else.
Go to the doctor and get it checked possabel you have somesort of fungus that needs stronger medicine.

You can always go the dermatologist route, but as a football player I commonly use noxzema. Its a white cream, that many people do not realize is used to treat overheated skin. It will burn for about 1 minute but after that it cools this usually cures my chaffing in about two nights. Put it on before you go to bed and typically by the morning it will be better. Also if you feel like its going to happen again put it on at night it will prevent it.

I'll tell you the fastest way to get rid of "Jock Itch"
Jock itch is a pretty common fungal infection of the groin and upper thighs. It's part of a group of fungal skin infections called tinea. The medical name for jock itch is tinea cruris. 75% of men will eventually get this infection.
Jock itch, like other tinea infections, is caused by several types of mold-like fungi called dermatophytes. All of us have microscopic fungi and bacteria living on our bodies, and dermatophytes are among them. Dermatophytes live on the dead tissues of your skin, hair, and nails and thrive in warm, moist areas like the insides of the thighs. So, when the groin area gets sweaty and isn't dried properly, it provides a perfect environment for the fungi to multiply and thrive.
You need to make sure you clean and dry that "area" very well every day. You should treat your feet aswell as your groin because when you put on your pants and underwear it drags the fungi up.
As far as treatment goes, this is what i reccommend for the fastest way to clear it up.
Spread tea tree oil over the affected area 3 times daily followed by powdering the area with sodium bicarbonate (baking soda). Baking soda is extremely effective and is the strongest anti-fungal defence. In addition you should wash the area with anti-dandruff shampoo when showering.

just cleared this up, go to you pharmicist and see if you can get something called fucidin cream, it should clear it up overnight, however keep applying after rash has gone for another week or so, or itll just come backClean Bulking from 144 - 170 Then cutting to 7/8% BF

Compression shorts FTW. Anytime I'm about to go run I'll use Skin Lube or Body Glide on any areas that might chaffe (sp?). If I do chaffe, after a shower I'll put baby powder on and the next morning I'm fine.

Once you have the jock itch gone, use some anti chafe balm. The stuff in the pic i posted is what I use, It works awesome.
