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.

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

CoolerThanMyself
I'm a 12 year old girl with really strict parents! I do chores( even handling BLEACH sometimes) , I take care of my little brother, I'm in top set for all my classes- even on the gifted and talented register and I've only ever had 1 detention- and that was their fault anyway bc I was late( they drive). But, I'm still NEVER allowed out with my friends! My friends are all in top sets as well, are well behaved and all we literally would do is window shopping. I mean, there are my age smoking shisha and doing #####- they should be lucky I'm not a delinquent! But my parents always say I can't hang out. Not because they're worried about my safety, they just dont want me to go out.! Even sleepovers, my parents always say no because they ' haven't met the parents" but they make NO effort to do so. I'm losing out on knowing my friends better and whilst they're all making best friends, at school I'm just the person in the background- the left out friend. It hurts and most of the time I wish I was fostered or something. How can I make them loosen up? ( don't say anything about sneaking out because I chose life)

Is there a particular reason or situation causing you to feel this way? I can't provide much advice other than talk to them about it. Communication is important.

He is a jerk, but then what ?? He is your best friend . Maybe you should tell him to sleep for an extra hour. It may be a lack of sleep.

No. I don't like those people at the mall. Sometimes, they ask my family and I (usually directed at my mom and sister, but sometimes at me, too. Even though I'm under 13. Not for long though.) if they want their hair done. And sometimes I'm so tempted to say, "No thank you. I did my hair today. Do you think I want it done?" But of course I never do. It's kinda disrespectful. So we just usually say No thank you. My mom, sister, and I now have a solution for that (my idea when I was maybe ages 9-11) Don't make eye contact with them and pretend that they aren't there.
