Thank you again Blondie, you couldn't be more helpful.
Just read a post in the 'jock itch' forum and the person praised calamine lotion. Gonna give it a try. What the heck . . tried everything else. The oxy I ordered from GHC hasn't gone anywhere yet according to usps tracking; still in Texas. Probably be at least a week before it gets here in CT so it looks like I have time for a few more 'experiments'!
