About

There are more than 1 million cases in India annually [1].

- It is also called a jock itch as it is more prevalent in athletic people who sweat a lot.
- Though it causes certain levels of discomfort, they are usually not serious and could be resolved within a short period of time.
- Tenia Cruris can be prevented by using clean clothes, staying dry, and avoiding the sharing of personal items.

It is also common in men, young adults, diabetic people, individuals with a weak immune system or overweight persons. Tight underwear could also be a contributing factor.
