A. Tinea cruris ("jock itch") usually involves the medial aspect of the upper thighs (groin). Unlike yeast infections, tinea cruris generally does not involve the scrotum or the penis.

B. Topical therapy is sufficient in most patients with tinea cruris. If the infection spreads to the lower thighs or buttocks, oral therapy with itraconazole or terbinafine is recommended.
