This has been the second time I suffered with jock itch. I contracted it last week after using an old razor I didn't sanitize properly. Let me say first and foremost from my experience I would avoid using Gold Bond or any similar powder because it irritates the skin and worsens the infection. Two days ago I started using apple cider vinegar full strength in a spray bottle after showering and drying myself thoroughly. I would agree that it does sting like hell when you first apply ACV but the good news is that it clears up the infection and I'm only on my second day of using it. ACV also cured my athletes foot last year so I didn't doubt it do the same for the groin area.

I have completely eliminated cracking and peeling skin that I had on my left foot for years, using apple cider vinegar. I had tried anti-fungal creams and powders and they do not work. When I was using them I did not feel good - the chemicals in them were no doubt entering my body, with unknown effects. Anyway, back to the apple cider vinegar. After two weeks of using it twice a day, my feet are soft and the skin looks young and normal. I used a strong 8% ACV. I poured a little into my hand and wiped it over my feet, taking care to wet the nails and also between the toes. It has a strong smell but so what, its not unpleasant. After the skin healed, I continued to use it for a few more weeks. The fungus gets deep in your skin, also your socks, your shoes. They all need to be thoroughly sunned and aired and cleaned, the fungal infection is lurking there waiting for an opportunity to come back. So keep it clean and aired
