At CanXida, we have frequently discussed the concern of jock itch, a common skin issue affecting many. If you’re trying to treat jock itch, it’s essential to understand that this isn’t just a superficial skin problem. For effective treatment, one should address it both internally and externally. The best outcomes arise from modifications in your diet and lifestyle, alongside external treatments.
It’s a misconception to believe that merely treating the skin around the groin area will suffice. Jock itch has a deep-rooted connection with one’s diet, beverage choices, and overall lifestyle. In fact, many with severe jock itch often have significant intestinal yeast infections. Some even experience systemic yeast infections, where the yeast has spread throughout their entire body. Consumption patterns play a role too. Overindulgence in alcohols, especially beer, and unhealthy food choices like pizza often contribute to the problem. Additionally, wearing the wrong type of clothing, especially underwear with synthetic materials, can exacerbate the condition.
To gain a better understanding of the severity of your jock itch, which is fundamentally a yeast infection, we recommend taking our yeast infection quiz available in our book Candida Crusher. Once you gauge the intensity, you can strategize how to address it. Among the primary contributors to jock itch are alcohols and sugars. Reducing or eliminating alcohol for 4-6 months can lead to noticeable improvements. This includes all types of alcoholic beverages and sugary drinks. Other foods to be wary of include bread, takeaway food, ice cream, donuts, bagels, and sundaes.
For dietary recommendations, refer to our extensive collection of articles available online. Furthermore, we’ve developed a product, CanXida, that can be a potent ally in your fight against jock itch when taken internally. Externally, tea tree oil can be a beneficial treatment for the affected area. As for clothing recommendations, 100% cotton undergarments are ideal. Ensure to change into a fresh pair twice daily, after showering. If possible, spending time in ocean water during the summer can also be beneficial.
In addition to the steps mentioned above, we advise using our CanXida product, which has been designed specifically to aid those suffering from such conditions. A comprehensive approach to treatment, taking into account both internal and external factors, can go a long way in alleviating jock itch.
