Jock itch and sex.
Mar 18, 2009
Hello, this is my first time on this forum. My boyfriend has had jock itch for about a week now and has been putting lamisil cream everyday after showering. Before he was aware that his symptoms were due to jock itch, I started to notice this red round shaped thing on my left thigh. I kind of ignored it and began to notice as the days started to pass that it wasn't going away so after my boyfriend realized that it was indeed jock itch, I knew for sure that I was dealing with a ringworm. To sum it up, we shared towels and that's how I ended up with it. Anywho, his symptoms have gotten better throughout the days and in reality, we only have sex on the weekends since that's the only time we see each other and it's not completely gone yet so my question is if we should avoid sex altogether until it is completely gone? I heard it may take up to 3-4 weeks until the rash disappears. Is it possible to have intercourse while he has his boxer shorts on since the majority obviously have an opening in the front? Or could this still pose a risk in me getting this fungus somewhere else?
