In the past, I’ve discussed various methods of coping with Jock itch. But, there are times when it gets in somehow.
Under the list of precautions, I always mention wearing a regular cotton boxer brief to prevent Jock itch.
But the question is, not everyone knows which one is good and which ones aren’t.
In this post, I’ve listed down the points you should ponder while choosing a boxer brief, along with the best briefs.
The points would help you to narrow down and shop the best one for your itch.
You can also consider testing some ointments or antifungal soaps.
I always recommend bathing with anti-fungal soap and then keeping the moisture out with these briefs.
Here are some best practices you should be aware before you start wearing boxer briefs.
1. Don’t lock air in
The whole idea of these undergarments is ventilation. You don’t want to choke your groin area. Air should be able to pass in and out.
A good way to test whether or not your undergarment locks air is to blow air from one side of the cloth. If you can feel it on the other side; kudos!
Your undergarment should allow your groin area to breath. If you can’t feel the air on the opposite side, the fabric is certainly too thick.
This plays a crucial role in the selection of your boxer brief.
Jock itch bacteria breeds in folds, or moist spaces thereby, it is essential to wear breathable and loose clothing undergarments to keep your groin dry.

Try to avoid clothing as much as possible
The best hack to avoid/cure your jock itch is to wear no clothing at all.
I am not asking you to get freaky and roam around streets naked, but think about it when you are home alone.
Lose your clothes and have some private time, you’ll love the sensation when your groin/private parts get touched by air.
