Here at Soft Touch Chiropractic in Porter Ranch, patients normally come to heal their back pain, but often they come in with "side complaints". One of the most common side complaints I hear is about jock itch. I can relate to my "side complainers" because I suffered from jock itch myself.
For years I have tried various natural remedies. I used a combination of essential oils applied directly to the skin. Oregano and tea tree oil were the most effective, but they only gave me relief for one or two days. I also used over-the-counter medications: Lamisil, Lotrimin and others. I thought my last resort would be a prescription medication, but none of them worked at all; even taking two showers a day brought little relief.
What is jock itch?
It is a fungal infection (tinea cruris AKA ringworm, but it is not a worm) that effects the outer layers of skin. Fungi grow in warm, moist and watery areas of skin such as the inner thighs, groin, between toes and buttocks.
The Treatment That Actually Worked?
While searching for natural creams for muscle spasm, I came across two natural products: Fungus - Luyties and Thuja Ceate. The first is a pill to be taken orally every four hours and the second is a balm to be put directly on the affected skin. They need to be used together. After testing so many products, I said to myself, "What the heck, let's try it." AND it worked. After using the combination of products for two months, I very rarely have itching now. I still use it consistently. The real test came when I went camping and couldn't shower for three days. Usually, I would be suffering by the second day without a shower, but during this trip I had no itching at all.
If you have any other questions about the product or how to use it, please call me 818-831-0100.
