Brief Answer: Jock itch Detailed Answer: Hi Ms. XXXXXXX Welcome to health care magic. I have gone through your query and I understand your concern regarding jock itch spread. "Jock itch" is a common name for fungal infection of skin of groin usually caused by fungi called dermatophytes. It is medically called tenia cruris and can occur in both males and females. This infection can spread to your partner by very close contact but it is easily treatable by antifungal therapy. I suggest you and your husband get a skin test done for fungal culture and get appropriate therapy for the same. Regarding your husbands health problems, I will require more details about his symptoms and I will be able to assist you based on that. I hope I have cleared your doubts. Please get back if any more clarifications. Thanks.
