Jock Itch, Nail Fungus, Candida, & Yeast are all linked and while systemic yeast overgrowth is more common in women than in men, this is not to say that men do not have this problem. About one in three women and one in five men have a yeast overgrowth at any given time. In men, some of the common symptoms are nail fungus and jock itch. Yeast can not only live internally but on the surface of the skin as well. It thrives in dark, damp areas where little light or air reaches. If jock itch is present, it’s almost a sure bet that a systemic yeast condition is present internally. While nail fungus isn’t a yeast issue we often find those with a systemic candida issue to also have fungal problems as well.
Fungi are low grade anaerobic organisms for the most part and frequent those with yeast issues, probably due to the suppression of the immune system through over stimulation from the yeast. Skin issues like jock itch and especially nail fungus can be annoying and embarrassing but can, in most cases be cleared up fairly quickly with applied and internal oxygen. If you suffer from one or both of these skin issues consider taking our candida symptom evaluation. I will call you with your results.
If present systemic candida will likely prevent you from getting rid of either the jock itch or the nail fungus without addressing the yeast overgrowth as well.
