I've think I have the jock itch for 8 months

Patient

Q: I've think I have the jock itch for 8 months now. The genital area is reddish and feels very itchy sometimes. I bathe daily and wash it but it's all in vain. I guess I got a jock itch from the gym I used to go because there the towels were washed together. It's really embarrassing to go to a doctor to consult. Please advice something so that it can go away forever. Thanks a lot in advance cause this is real hindering my life!
