While in conversation with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) yesterday, Thursday, 7th May, 2020, Egemba expressed that unwashed or repeated use of the same boxers for days could irritate the skin.

According to the medical expert, the fungal infection, common in athletes, overweight people and those who sweat a lot, often affects the groin and inner thighs.

He said;

“Jock itch (tinea cruris) is a fungal infection that causes a red and itchy rash in warm and moist areas of the body.

“The rash often affects the groin and inner thighs and may be shaped like a ring.

“Jock itch gets its name because it’s common in athletes. It’s also common in people who sweat a lot or who are overweight.

The pubic region is an area in the human body that is always dark, warm and moist due to sweating, when you repeat same boxer for days, you are making fungi to grow and multiply in the pubic area.

“This could lead to Jock itch and Groin infection caused by a fungus known as ‘Tinea Cruris’ and usually develops in the skin around the groin, inner thighs and buttocks.

“This is most common in men and adolescent boys.

“The common symptoms include itching and burning, red, scaly, circular rashes and peeling of the skin. When this happens, see a doctor for proper treatment,”

He advised that boxers should be changed every day in order to prevent bacteria from finding their ways into the body.
