Yes! You are not going to get rid of this with herbs! You need an antifungal drug. Since you have had it so long, you may need pills and a topical cream to rid yourself of this fungus! There is NO reason to suffer like this when it could be easily cured with an antifungal medication from a medical doctor or even over the counter meds for "jock itch" Tinea cruris is considered a mild condition and is usually treated with medications that often do not require a prescription. It should easily clear up after 2 to 4 weeks with topical use of an antifungal cream, powder, or lotion applied to the affected area 2 or 3 times a day. Since you have had this condition for some time, it may require antifungal pills too.
Antifungal creams and powders such as clotrimazole* or miconazole, available without prescription at the pharmacy, are effective against most dermatophytes. It's important to continue use after the infection has disappeared for as long as the instructions recommend.
If inflammation persists for much more than 2 or 3 weeks despite antifungal medication, a doctor should be consulted. A doctor may prescribe a different antifungal cream or possibly an antifungal medication taken by mouth to treat the infection.
Following these tips will help to relieve and prevent jock itch:
Wear loose-fitting clothing and underwear.
Change underwear often, especially after sweating.
Shower as soon as possible after exercising.
Wash exercise clothes after each use.
Don't sit around in a wet bathing suit.
After showering, put socks on first. If underpants are put on first, foot fungus can rub off into the underwear and cause jock itch.
Use corn starch or talcum powder in areas more likely to become infected to keep them free of moisture.
You need to use something to get rid of it. You require an antifungal medicine. We have a powder spray called tinactin that is really good for it. It is possible to get rid of it and have a normal life if you use the correct medication. I don't know of any herbs that kill a fungus. You also have to keep the area clean and as dry as possible.
