Vaginal Sweating : Crotch Sweat

Yes, you read "vaginal sweating", believe it or not but it is a very frequent situation. Like axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive armpit sweating), there is another more intimate case of sweating, namely genital hyperhidrosis. However, due to the fact that the area is rather intimate, many are embarrassed to talk about it.

What is hyperhidrosis?

When the sweat secretion by the sweat glands is significantly superior to normal one speaks of hyperhidrosis. In addition to the hereditary factor, hyperhidrosis can be caused by certain diseases (hyperthyroidism, diabetes mellitus, hormonal disorders etc.), certain pharmaceutical products (antidepressants) or nervous system disorders. Certain cases of hyperhidrosis are triggered by the consumption of foods like strong spices (curry), peanuts, coffee or even chocolate. Other factors include stress, anxiety, infections, hormonal disorders as well as unsuitable tissues such as lycra.

Sweating manifests itself in unpleasant and uncomfortable symptoms such as strong body odor, irritation due to friction, unsightly aureoles, etc.

We have two eccrine and apocrine sweat glands. The first are found on almost the entire surface of the skin whereas the apocrine sweat glands are only present in certain cutaneous parts (nipples, armpits, genital and anal regions).

Sweat is 99% water in addition to urea, fatty acids, ammonia, sodium chloride (salt), androgen and protein.

The nervous system regulates the sweat glands via a neurotransmitter, acetylcholine.

But why do we perspire?

First, sweating is a defense system against pathogens. Then, the evaporation of sweat through the skin is a way for the body to evacuate excess water. When it is very hot, the secretion of sweat begins with the face at the forehead and upper lip, then extends to the rest of the body. However, when one is stressed, this production begins with the palm of the hand, the armpits and the soles of the feet.

How can this be improved?

Drink enough water and opt for a balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables but low in substances that encourage the production of sweat (sugar, alcohol, spices, etc.).

Take your shower daily and think about trimming your hairs as they may promote bacteria proliferation and bad odors when they are long.
Avoid cloths that stick and clothes too tight to avoid rubbing with the vagina. Prefer materials such as cotton.

Put on hygienic bands to absorb sweat, but do not forget to change them regularly.

Prepare this home remedy and say goodbye to excessive genital sweating
Fill your bathtub with water and pour a glass of apple cider vinegar and dive for about twenty minutes. Vinegar is a powerful antiseptic that will disinfect your skin and eliminate bacteria.

Otherwise prefer foods such as sage teas, black tea, tomato juice, cucumber, aloe vera as they all have an astringent effect, and fervently fight excessive sweating. Some like the cucumber even tighten the pores.

Do not hesitate to consult a specialist if you really feel complicated by your sweating problems.
