Dermatologist Questions Jock Itch

Can women get jock itch?

Recently I've been having symptoms that seem like jock itch, but thought only men got jock itch. Can women get it too? I'm also 34 years old.

Certainly, women can get jock itch just like men. Some of the causes can be perfumes, after-bath lotions, moisturizers, certain soaps, especially if not rinsed off entirely. If you are diabetic, get it under control. Also, detergent used to launder underwear should be rinsed twice if you are having a problem.
Hope that helps!!
