10 Best Cheapest Medications for Jock Itch
Jock Itch is a fungal infection in the groin area that if happens, frustrates us whole day. I understand!
It’s no brainer than rubbing or scratching your itch will worsen the case leading to further formation of an abscess and bacterial formation.
Below I have recommended some cheapest and reliable medications for Jock Itch which you can choose to use based on your Jock Itch condition and if it doesn’t work out well in 1-2 weeks time, you should definitely consult a doctor.
1. Defense Soap Bar
Ingredients of this bar include Tetrasodium EDTA, Tetrasodium Etidronate, Melaleuca Alternifolia Oil, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf, Sodium Palmate, Sodium Palmate Kernelate, Glycerin, and Water. The soap doesn’t contain any Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or alcohol.
The Defense soap bar contains therapeutic botanicals in high concentrations. Widely used by athletes & people who wish to keep their skin clean. The soap treats the jock itch indirectly. Rather than curing the itch, it keeps the skin dry & clean which in turn doesn’t allow the fungus to grow in that particular region.
Its ingredients like Eucalyptus oil and Tea tree have anti-fungal properties which resist the growth & survival of fungus.
2. Miconazole Antifungal Cream
This cream has been clinically tested to cure Jock itch. If you are irritated that burning sensation all day, this cream would give you instant relief. The cream contains 2% miconazole nitrate which is an effective ingredient to prevent bacterial growth in the groin area. Which in turn helps to heal the itch faster.
The only reason I and several physicians recommend this cream because of the presence of Miconazole nitrate which is a great ingredient to cure Jock itch faster than other alternatives. If your itch is recurring, this cream can be a great solution for you.
3. Itchy Balls Hot Pepper Jock Spray for Itching, Irritation, and Odor
In the first glimpse, the name doesn’t look like anything that can cure jock itch. But, as they say, Fire beats fire. The spray is effective against itching, bad odor, sweat, and skin irritation. It also serves for reducing moisture on crotch, thighs, and folds making them dry and prevent fungi growth.

The soap has been proven to be a great relief to the discomfort caused by yeast and fungal overgrowth. The soap has Aloe Vera, Alpha Lipoic acid, and Bacillus coagulants which are known for their anti-fungal properties.

Unlike soap or cream, spray can reach to areas where soap or cream might not.
