We’ve all had it. The hidden jock itch enemy that somehow gets through our defences and hits us where it hurts the most, ground zero…our groin! Knowing what underwear is best to fight jock itch is only the beginning.
Before you read which underwear we think is best for curing your jock itch dilemma, first make sure you have a butchers hook (look!) at the following other articles on here. A combination of the right applicant such as cream or spray, plus the right underwear can really help to accelerate healing jock itch, so get at them!
Ok, so now you’re prepared medically, let’s address your wardrobe choices to achieve a jock itch free crotch!
When it comes to dressing here are a couple of things you want to keep in mind.
Keep it loose
That’s right, now is not the time for tight jeans, no matter how many Emo bands you listen to. I’m not saying throw out all of your “The Used” albums, just shelf them for a week or so (you can keep the man-fringe though).
Remember you gotta let your balls breathe! Jock itch breeds in moist dark spaces so keeping our clothing loose and breathable lets more air in and helps keep your nether regions dry! This point will play a big part in the future consideration of which underwear to choose!
Keep it light
As stated in the last point, the idea is breathability. Don’t choke your chode! You want to hit it with some natural air conditioning, so for this reason start dressing like a hippie. You know, loose pants, tie die t-shirts, braids in your hair, it’ll all help! Ok, maybe not the braids, but definitely the loose, light pants!
A good test is to blow air onto the fabric. If you can feel it on the other side then it’s a great material to help with jock itch alleviation. If you can’t feel your breath, the fabric is too heavy (most jeans will fit into this category and have got to go).
Keep it nude!
The best clothing to cure jock itch is no clothing at all! Yep, seriously! So for this reason you should seriously think about going “nakie” as often as you can.
If you’re home alone, get funky and lose the clothes! You will feel the breeze across your tender parts and boy will it feel good! Trust us, in fact…get naked now! That’s an order soldier!
Ever seen the movie about that kid and the killer whale, yep this is just like that!
Ok, so in a perfect world you could just walk around naked all day. We are realists here at Jock Itch Crusader and know you can’t do that. But at least with our tips above and the following underwear “best of” you can get your wardrobe also doing it’s bit in the fight against jock itch.
Here are the 5 best choices for loose, light and well fitting underwear that will combat jock itch – read on!
