Adele battling fungal skin infection after ‘sitting in sweat’

Adele breaks down in tears with James Corden in Carpool Karaoke

Adele has opened up about dealing with an unpleasant fungal skin infection called a “jock itch”, a skin infection of the groin area, after sweating in her Spanx while performing.

The 35-year-old spoke about how she sweated so heavily in her Spanx body-shaping underwear that she suffered acne around her midriff on Sunday night.

The Londoner admitted that she suffered from “jock itch”, affecting the upper part of the thighs, buttocks and lower parts of the abdomen.

Speaking on stage at her residency return, Adele said: “Do you know what my doctor gave me? It is a bit crude but I never knew it existed.

“Me and my team were talking about it earlier. Obviously, when I do my shows I wear Spanx to keep it all in and make it all fit me.

“And I sweat a lot and it doesn’t go anywhere. So basically I just sit in my own sweat. And my doctor gave me Jock Itch [cream].”

According to The Sun, Adele went on: “So it looks like I am an athlete basically, so I have to squirt it on myself. I don’t know why the f**k I just told you that!

“Talking of body acne I have started weight lifting again like no-one’s business. And I am absolutely loving it.”

A jock itch, medically known as “tinea”, is not a serious condition and is usually easily treated, according to the NHS.

Symptoms can include red or brown sores which may have blistered and are itchy.

The superstar also touched on her wild holiday to the Dominican Republic and revealed that she enjoyed a four-hour karaoke session and she feared losing her voice.

“I got a bit frightened,” she remarked. “I was hoarse. I didn’t speak for two days afterwards. “Another time I did all nighter, which I am too old to do now.”

“I went to bed at 9am. And I can’t do that anymore. It is fun to go out on a big one. But never again. I like to be in bed by 9PM and not AM.”

Meanwhile, Adele took to her Instagram page at the weekend and shared a series of photos from her latest gig in Las Vegas.

The mum-of-one looked chic in a fitted dress which was accessorised with the Pride colours.

Fans flocked to comment on her appearance as people praised the singer.

One person penned: “Absolute Stunner…Happy Pride and Celebrate Love,” while another added: “Such an incredible evening!”
