Summertime is approaching and there’s nothing that kills the mood worse than not feeling fresh “down there.” Sweating in the groin and vaginal area can be very problematic, especially as the weather gets hotter. So why do we sweat down there? How much is too much? And what can we do to improve it?
Sweating in the vaginal area is common because the vagina has apocrine glands (sweat glands). However, too much sweating can be a problem. Excessive sweating can not only cause you to feel uncomfortable or embarrassed, it can also lead to itching, chafing, and a foul odor in your private area, making sex and intimacy undesirable.
So what can you do?
It is important to wear cotton underwear and avoid wearing tight-fitting clothing.
Use a barrier cream like petroleum jelly to help with chaffing. Taking frequent baths can also help keep you feeling fresh and ready for your next rendevouz.
Some people sweat worse than others so if you find yourself trying everything and continuing to have problems, it’s time to see your doctor to discuss other possible causes as well as treatment options which include managing any underlying conditions, botox, prescriptions medications, and even surgical options.
There’s no need to sit at home sulking this summer due to sweat in your nether regions. Take the time to follow the above recommendations so you can feel fresh and be ready for all of the sex and intimacy your heart desires.
