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.

Honestly I think a big issue with bullying is the fact that the person who engages in the negative behaviour is labelled a bully. It's really no better than what they did in the first place. They become victimized and hurt even more than before.  I think we could definitely stop bullying if there was more tolerance, understanding, and acceptance. :)

Thanks! ☺ this was partially the reason why i didn't like makeup, so.... Ha. Maybe it's not so bad if you can learn how to wear it correctly and it's not hard to put on.

I am currently being mildly bullied and picked on at school. But I'm pulling through. You don't always meet everyone who loves you in life, you just gotta smile and bare it! x
