Hi ithurtsnottherestop,

I hope that your rash has cleared, or that you have seen a doctor if the itching has persisted. Here is some information on jock itch that includes treatment options in case you are still suffering (I know how annoying and painful constant itching can be). The article does recommend contacting you doctor if the problem persists more than 2 weeks with at-home treatment, so if you are still experiencing these symptoms I encourage you to make an appointment to have it looked at if you haven't already.

Best wishes
