What Causes Jock Itch?

Jock Itch: Prevalence, Symptoms and Treatment

Jock itch, groin itch or fungal (Yeast) rash and tinea infections can be distressing and embarrassing. Recurring or continuous yeast infections indicate a compromised immune system - as in poisoning via food toxins. 

For a solution - reduce the amount of food toxins in the body using a LOW TOXIN DIET.


Facts About Jock Itch and Fungal Infections

Prevalence of Jock Itch

Fungal infections like Jock Itch are common:

  • Up to one in three (33%) of people have a fungal infection
  • Fungal infections can appear as:
    • Jock Itch
    • Tinea
    • Ringworm
    • Thrush (Candida).

 Fungal infections are common in men, women and even in babies.


Symptoms of Jock Itch

Symptoms are:

  • Red itchy skin patches - particularly in skin folds on or around the genitalia
  • Size of red patches may increase within a few hours
  • Itchiness can lead to scratching which can break the skin and invite further infection

If left untreated the raised red patches may develop pustules making further infection a real possibility. Consult your doctor - who will know whether you need an anti-biotic.


Treatment of Jock Itch

If we can find out the cause of the Jock Itch - and remove it - the Jock itch will heal naturally. Also - it will never come back.

Most often - the cause of Jock Itch is a reaction to commonly ingested FOOD TOXINS.

This situation usually often arises when there is too much sweet or savoury starchy food in the diet (a high toxin diet) - as is frequently the case with modern Western diet: bread, pasta, cereals, pizza, cookies, cake, pie, donuts and more.

The obvious way to be rid of jock itch is to reduce food toxins in the diet.


More about Jock Itch

The jock itch known as candida albicans is common, and is generally suffered when the body's defences are down - as with the presence of food toxins. Long-term untreated food intolerance puts undue stress on your body - leaving you vulnerable to infection (like candida) from a depressed immune system.

Jock itch is obviously a male term and refers to the rash and accompanying itching associated with candida in the groin area of men.
