If you have jock itch the skin will be red/brown - see this picture http://www.healthhype.com/jock-itch-pictures-causes-and-treatment.html
Rather not use stop itch as this contains cortisone and may cause thinning of the skin and even stimulate the growth of fungal skin infections. Try wearing cotton underwear or boxer shorts to keep the area dry and cool. One sometimes has to use antifungal creams for up to 6 weeks for fungal infections. You can also use an antifungal powder like Mycota in the groin area.
