Ditch That Jock Itch

Jock Itch is caused by a type of fungus that lives on your skin. If that sounds disgusting, imagine what it feels like. A bad case will have you grabbing yourself all day - so here's some ways to DITCH THAT JOCK ITCH!

1. Jock itch is caused when you get lots of sweat and moisture around your nuts. So make sure you keep that area dry after exercising, showering or swimming.

2. And as for that old jock strap you've been wearing for the past 6 months - try washing it. A dirty, sweaty jock is an easy breeding ground for jock itch fungus.

3. Avoid sharing towels. Even if it's your best friend - tell him to get his own towel.

4. Make sure your gym clothes fit properly and don't rub against the inside of your thigh.

5. If you think you got some jock itch coming on, dab the area with cornstarch or drying powder from the drug store. If you've got something more serious talk to your doctor - they can give you a prescription for a stronger medication.

throughout school I have always been picked on weither it be because of my interests or just my personality. In middle school I was called ####### everyday by all the guys in my grade. One of my teachers even bullied me and my mom never believed me because my teacher was so nice to her... I ended up crying on the 3rd day of my freshman year because the kids in my class were so mean to me... I'm gonna be a sophomore in highschool this year and I really don't want to go back to school because I'm afraid that it will be a repeat of freshman year... I need advice on how to make the best of the rest of school if I have to deal with the people that bully me...

My mom. She utterly hates me and whenever we fight she not only takes all my things away in a rage so I can't talk to anyone online, she screams about how I'm stupid, lazy and a horrible person and other similar bad stuff. Thanks for the self esteem boost Mom (:
