Cranberry Pills and Jock Itch

05/01/2008

Question:

I am 87 and have had severe jock itch for 12 continuous years. I have had to apply an prescription ointment to both sides of my scrotum about every 4 days to keep it from going into lesion. This is going on for 12 years. So I was greatly pleased with the results of adding cranberry pills (from Walmart) to my diet for the purpose of reducing the frequency of urinary tract infection`s that I am bothered with. My jock itch has disappeared now for 6 weeks. Never before in the 12 years has this come close to happening.

Can you suggest a forum or medium I can post this anecdotal testimony on so other men can see it and benefit from it? Thanks.
