Jock itch in pubic area

I play alot of sports and have itching in my pubic area. The problem is that I have college from 0800-1530 hrs, so I cannot do anything about sweating in college. Should I continue playing sports as our major tournament is coming up. If not, is there any way to treat the infection fast.

Hi. Greetings.Your infection should not prevent you from your work or play. Definitely this can be treated and treated in time so that could attend your tournament. All you need is to see a qualified dermatologist in your curry so that he could confirm the diagnosis and presence of infection and peregrine necessary medications to you. Don't buy over the counter anti itch creams like itchguard and panderm etc, since they actually worsen the infection and reduce itch only temporarily. Let me know if you need any further assistance in this regards.

Acnce scars are graded into 4 stages. Scar by definition is a permanent mark on the skin. Grade 1&2 scars can be treated with creams but grade 3&4 scars require procedures. I usually do two kinds of procedures for my patients. Microneedling or CO2 LASER. These two procedures can be combined with other minor procedures like subscision and CROSS techniques. Depending on your type of scars, skin type and how many days you can stay indoors after the procedure, we select procedures. These have to be done in sessions. You will need atleast 3 to 4 sessions of any of these procedures to get improvement. Your skin will continue to improve upto 1 year after stopping the procedures. These procedures cause remodelling of the fibres below your skin called as collagen. So whatever improvement you get will last for atleast several years, till age takes over again. Warm regards.
