i got it - i take a shower each day and if im sweaty than after the activity and i still got it - i started a diet but it will take 2-3 months until it will make a difference and in the meantime its hard to do walking meditation
it must be very common to have this problem i would believe especially in thailand where its moist
so any ideas on how to prevent this ?

See your pharmacist or doctor, they are probably best placed to provide you with a remedy. kind regards,
"Only those who take to meditation with good intentions can be assured of success. With the development of the purity and the power of the mind backed by the insight into the ultimate truth of nature, one might be able to do a lot of things in the right direction for the benefit of mankind."
i dont have it now actually because i only do short walking meditation of 30 minutes instead of 55 like i want to and do it just once or twice a day the only thing that stops me is the feeling of a jock itch coming up so thats why i would like to hear all the tips anyone here can think of
Jock itch is a fungus and oesn't just come and go, though like other fungal infections, it can be fairly dormant and then bloom suddenly. Fungi love dark warm moist environments, like your jocular region after a workout. The best way to keep it from blooming is by completely getting rid of it. And doctors can prescribe better anti-fungal medicine than you can get over the counter. So I second the doctor route - even if you aren't currently experiencing symptoms.
Yes, there is a simple solution. Please don't think I'm being sarcastic when I tell you of this. When I worked as a groundskeeper in high school, I noticed one of the supervisors, when his shirt rose over his waistband, wore a unusual garment. I asked "Curly, why are you wearing panty hose?" He said, "Prevents chafing." I've been told this many times over the years, even by my doctor.
