Jock itch (overusage of cream)
I was basically itching everywhere. Especially under my scrotum. (had some around my glans) I noticed it was red and kind of glossy/shiny looking sometimes but mostly reddish/pink. The doctor gave me some cream that’s used for jock itch. I misread the instructions and used it twice a week 2x daily (morning & night) everywhere it was itching and burning. Almost during the second week I noticed dryness and a little reduction in size. I read the instructions again and found my error. But is it possible for the cream to have reduced size. Is it temporally. (I did put it on my genitals). And I know the cream has some type of steroids which is not good.

Hi,

I think you are just getting a little too anxious because of the itching.

I assure you that the cream would not have and could not affect the size - an increase in the itching temporarily is however possible.

'Jock itch causes itching or a burning sensation in the groin area, thigh skin folds, or anus. It may involve the inner thighs and genital areas, as well as extending back to the perineum and perianal areas.'

You could read more about the condition at the following link -

and

If the symptoms still persist, consult your skin specialist or dermatologist.

Let us know about how you are doing and if you have any other doubts.

Regards.
