The moist warmth of the groin makes it the perfect breeding ground for yeast and fungal infections, including jock itch, explains Dr. Hinkes. Causing itchy, red, ring-shaped patches on the genitals, inner thigh, and buttocks, this condition is more common in men, especially those who are sporty and active (hence its name). Keep the area clean and dry and avoid tight jeans and underwear which can make the problem worse. Topical antifungals usually work well, but repeated infections might indicate a weakened immune system or diabetes, so get checked if it keeps reappearing.
One of the most common causes of skin peeling is plain old dry skin or eczema, according to experts at the Mayo Clinic. There are many reasons for dry skin, including peeling and cracking in the fall and winter months. You might be naturally prone to dry skin, and cold, windy weather won’t help. Love your skin by using gentle cleansers and moisturizing well—your skin will love you back.
