Inner thigh odor and anus odor

Hello everyone first off I want to say that it has taken me a very long time to finally ask for help with my emabarresing situation.

I am a 22 year old male and I have a serious problem with sweating coming from my groin area and my anus the sweat does not bother me but the odor that comes from the sweat does,I have no idea how I prevent the bad odor.

To make you guys understand a bit more, I do not have any rash down there at all, I also do not get any itches or soreness down there, I looked up everything about this issue and can not get any help online, everyone either has inverse or genital poriasis and when I look up those names and see the images it is way off from what I have.

I take a bath all of the time and after a good shower lets say 2 or less hours later the smell is still is so fustrating because I know other people can smell it as well, for example if I were boxers around the house and after I sit for a long time and stand up there is a terrible odor left behind.

I can really use some help with this problem just so you know I am not over weight at all I am 6 feet three inches I weigh 228 pounds I am actually in good shape and I do not mean to be consited lol.

I do use after shower which works only if I put it on like 4 times a day, talk about fustrating I do not mind putting on the after shower but I would like to use something else as well to help fight this problem.also the sweat from my inner thigh folds are very creamy and thick its been like that for over 8 years, I know its not anything terribly bad, I do not have an infection either and its not contagious because my wife and I just had a baby and everything went smooth so I doubt its an infection that I have.

Any tips, products will be greatly appreciated, I really need your help people so if you have this problem in anyway please share what you do, or if your are a doctor who is familiar with htis problem then please share your advice.

I am wondering if I can buy some type of cream or ointment that can help me with this problem, oh and just so you know its not my penis that smells at all its just the inner thigh between my legs and my inner fold and my anus it can also be a mild fungus but I am not sure, remember I have no itching I am not sore and it does not hurt down there at all,I also have not bu,ps or spots I feel extreamly normal just always moist. Thanks in advance

Answer #1

try using baby powder that usually keeps it dry

Answer #2

Perhaps you have Hyperhidrosis - I can’t diagnose it, I’m not a doctor, but it sounds like you have the proper symptoms…such as sweating from the perianal gland area. The sweat is often milky, white and thick.

There are some topical treatments you can try, like aluminum salts, or you may require a hormone to help counteract it.

I’d suggest asking your doctor about the possibility of Hyperhidrosis.

Answer #3

You know, I had a problem with “Crotch odor” even after showering and making sure I was completely dry down there and using powders I still had an odor. It especially worsened when I worked out or after dancing or something like that. I used Nodoro and after a day I noticed a difference. In a few days, there was no problem. Nodoro’s website says the odor is caused by a fungus. You should try it, although, I don’t know how it would work for the anus.

Answer #4

Do not use any types of powders period. I do have a sweating issue much like yours but not as severe as yours. I once used a powder to “keep it dry” and the powder started to have a caking affect in the anus. Then I started having soreness in the anus and the small sores were the powder clogging up the pores of my skin. Basically powder filled pimples. My wife had to squeeze then out of my anus which took care of the problem but wasn’t very comfortable during the process. ??? Maybe that is why she left me hahaha!!!

Seriously,,, try taking a zinc supplement. My brother in law had seriously nasty smelling feet, his doctor put him on a zinc pill and it helped a lot. Seems the body is loosing or needing something in the nutrition makeup,, and zinc seems to work for the feet,,,maybe for the other issues you are having. Good luck…

Answer #5

Use a body powder that contains zinc oxide, such as: Ammens, Johnson’s Medicated Powder, Gold Bond,etc..The zinc oxide will heal the most stubborn jock itch, diaper rash, yeast/fungal odors, bacterial odors from sweat, etc…

Answer #6

Answer #7

THIS WILL WORK AND BENEFIT YOU IN SO MANY OTHER WAYS - Buy 2 organic unwaxed lemons per day, juice them by hand into a pint glass add fresh mineral water and stevia to taste (Stevia - if you don’t like Lemons bitterness). Cut the left over squeezed lemon into pieces and place in freezer bag and keep it in the fridge. Drink 1 pint of the juice first thing before breakfast and one pint before your evening meal. The pieces of lemon in the fridge are to be used 2-4 times per day rubbed into the problem areas, use one piece per wiping session (one for your anus, one for your crotch) and then bin it. Meanwhile cut down on bread, meat. milk, eat no refined sugar if poss, caffeine (drink detox or skin purifying herbal teas) no alchohol. Removing these will cut off the food your fungus needs to survive, eat naturel unsweetned yogurt, this will help your gut as the citric acid in lemons and the removal of the problem foods kill the parasites inside and detox your liver. Your skin will get better and as well as masking the smell initially the lemons will make sure longterm your smell will go within usually 3 to 10 days. I know what you have been going through as I havew friends that have had similar yeasty smell issues with and I have had discoid excema to contend with!, took me 7 years to find a cure and this worked in many other ways (something in the lemons and the stevia combo kills most withdrawal symptoms from the sugar, booze, caffeine, (I also managed to stop smoking whilst doing this WITH NO WITHDRAWAL after previously failing 6 times. Still doing this now and my health has rocketed and my skin is the best its been since I was a child, I am writing a book about the power of lemons so I would love to hear how you got on if you try it email - Any further questions don’t be afraid to ask. I know allot about Lemons now:) Love and thanks EK

Answer #8

You could also be fighting with a yeast infection (yes, men can get yeast infections and not necessarily from sexual activity).

I’m a diabetic and the doctor said that that was why I developed a yeast infection. He prescribed Ketoconazole Cream, 2% which, I believe, is an anti-fungal medicine.

Since you seem to have had the problem for a long time, it might be worth a visit to the doctor so that he can get you on a treatment program that will solve your problem.

Answer #9

I’m with ethmer on this one…it sounds to me like a yeast production problem, also…DO go to a Dr., to get what you need…really, it’s probably a very easy solution to your problem…honest!! :)


Answer #10

I’m a 32 year old male and suffered similar type symptoms. It appeared quite insiduously and progrssivley worsened. I finally built up the courage to ask my wife if my groin was smelling, and sure enough it was. It was treated as a yeast infection and cleared up quite quickly. I avoided damp underwear so swimming and jogging were out for a weeks whilst I sorted out the problem. Since then it has not re-occured. Yeast infections can be easily passed between partners so you may want to ensure your partner is not carrying a similar type of infection, again as everyone else suggests consult your physisicna about this.

Answer #11

the dr will give you ketoconazole or nystatin cream to put on the areas. im not a male but my daughter has the same issues and she is 8. try these and see if they work as well. take a sitz bath (just enough water to cover the areas and luke warm) with epsom salts for about 10-15 minutes and try baby powder or gold bond (not the medicated kind that will burn like the dickens) let me know if this works
