Groin sweating is still a taboo subject. Although it’s not talked about much, it affects many women and can lead to some pretty embarrassing moments. To combat it it’s important to know all about pubic sweating: why it occurs and how to prevent it.
When we talk about sweating in general, we are talking about a normal process by which our body regulates its temperature. Concern arises when sweating is produced excessively and leads to feelings of discomfort. Although we most often sweat in the armpit area, some people experience pubic sweating because of sweat glands in the groin area. Hormones, metabolism or emotional state are just some of the factors that can lead to its occurrence, which when produced in excess is referred to in medical terms as hyperhidrosis.
If you’ve been experiencing groin sweating and are wondering what you could do to prevent it, you should know that there are methods that can help. For example, use only underwear made from 100% natural materials. We recommend Femi.Eko menstrual panties, which are suitable both for that time of the month and for pubic sweating.
Causes of excessive sweating in the groin area
To better understand what happens to your body when groin sweating occurs, it’s important to know what causes it. The sweat glands in that area of the body become overactive and cause excessive sweating in certain situations such as:
Intense sport makes you sweat in general, and this can happen all over your body. And if you run or train your leg muscles at the gym, for example, your lower body will produce more sweat, including in the groin area.
The existence of pubic hair encourages bacteria and dampness, which is why when your glands secrete sweat into your groin area you’re likely to experience increased discomfort, itching and bad odor.
Underwear is essential for every woman’s comfort, any day of the month. To feel protected and avoid unpleasant odors or itching, we recommend avoiding underwear made of synthetic fabrics that don’t allow the skin to breathe. What’s more, they retain moisture and increase the sensation of heat, so that sweating becomes a chore. Always choose underwear made of natural materials that can absorb and wick away moisture.
Changing hormone levels in women over 45 often cause hot flushes, which can lead to heavy sweating, even in the groin area.
Anxiety or stress
If you sweat a lot and in all areas of your body, it may be due to anxiety and stress.
Diabetes can cause glucose levels to change suddenly, which in turn can cause excessive sweating in both men and women.
People who experience this problem are prone to experiencing Inguinal sweating.
Solutions for groin sweating
Although pubic sweating is a problem that can give you a lot of headaches – increased discomfort, feeling damp and unpleasant odours – don’t worry! There are solutions you can turn to, such as major lifestyle changes (balanced diet, less stress, replacing underwear with 100% natural materials) or certain treatments, but only after a specialist medical check-up.
What can you do immediately to prevent pubic sweating? Replace your synthetic underwear and opt for moisture-friendly products instead. That means 100% natural fabrics that allow the skin to breathe and have the ability to absorb and eliminate sweat and any unpleasant odors. With this in mind, Femi.Eko specialists have developed panty designs that you can use for both menstruation and intimate sweating.
For example, Ida menstrual panties have an absorbent area made of organic cotton for protection without PFA or other harmful chemicals. The 4 different layers of protective material also make them extremely effective for groin sweat. You’ll forget about the unpleasant feeling of wetness, plus you won’t have the stress of unpleasant odor. You’ll feel protected and safe from the first time you wear them.
If you’re a constant exerciser, we’ve got your back with the latest product from Femi.Eko, the Victoria menstrual pantyhose. They have been carefully designed to provide effective protection for up to 12 hours during menstruation. But on top of that, thanks to the 4-layer protective material, they are ideal against any type of leakage. You can also use them if you have urinary incontinence, heavy discharge or pubic sweating.
And the Nanna panty model offers a high degree of comfort in daily use for vaginal discharge or groin sweating.
When to go to the doctor
The first step is to change your lifestyle, i.e. give up unhealthy foods, eliminate sedentariness and stress from your life and have very good personal hygiene. However, if excessive underarm sweating persists, it is recommended that you consult a specialist.
