Manuka oil effective natural cure for Jock Itch

Because one of the causes of jock itch, or tinea curis, a fungal infection of the inner thighs, is perspiration, powders that absorb moisture may help prevent the condition, according to Dr. Douglas D. Altchek, a Manhattan dermatologist and a clinical professor of dermatology at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine.

"Skin in the groin area tends to be more sensitive, and the inner thighs and scrotum are particularly susceptible to irritations, friction, fungal infections, eczema, and may be quite odoriferous due to its moisture, darkness and warmth," - Dr. Douglas D. Altchek

One natural solution to combat Jock Itch is the essential oil of the New Zealand Manuka plant.

This is a steam extracted natural oil that is included in a natural antifungal cream called East Cape Manuka cream

Studies by the NZ Cawthron Institute show conclusively that Manuka oil produced from wild plants in the remote East Cape region of New Zealand is an effective treatment for a wide range of human skin fungi, including Jock Itch, Tineas, Ringworm and Athletes Foot.

In in-vitro studies, Manuka oil was found to be up to 30 times more effective than Tea Tree oil.

No adverse indications have been reported
