How to control excessive vaginal sweating?

vaginal sweating

Sweating is a process that the body goes through to cool itself and thus balance its temperature. But what happens when this sweat is produced in excess? How can we control it? Keep reading to find out!

Consequences of excessive sweating: 

When we sweat we lose fluids and electrolytes. However, some people lose electrolytes faster than others, which has consequences for water maintenance and neuromuscular function. Proper intimate care is essential for preventing vaginal infections and sweating. The vagina is self-cleaning, so you should focus on keeping the vulva clean and dry.To avoid excessive sweating, take into account the following tips:

  • Shower: Take regular baths to wash off accumulated germs and sweat. Do not forget to dry your genital area very well. 
  • Correct Products: Avoid using harsh chemicals (deodorants, wipes) in the genital area and opt for natural options. Try using “Kitty Dust” to minimize the excessive sweating in your private area. A mix of Organic Arrowroot Powder, Peppermint and Rose Essential Oils that will help prevent sweating down there! All-natural. Talc Free.
  • Trim pubic hair: Pubic hair can be a breeding ground for yeast and other fungi. Try trimming the hair in the pubic area a bit to keep it clean as this is key for better air circulation, reducing perspiration, and avoiding sweating.
  • Wear cotton underwear: Synthetic materials like polyester don’t breathe as well as natural fabrics. Instead of allowing sweat to evaporate out, the material holds the sweat in and traps it against your skin. Natural fabrics like cotton and linen allow sweat to evaporate like it’s supposed to. The absorbent properties of cotton make moisture evaporate much faster, giving a feeling of comfort and freshness. 
  • Avoid douching: This practice can modify the pH of your body, making it prone to bacteria and infections. The more bacteria, the more moisture will be accumulated in your private area.
  • Opt for loose, flowing fabrics
  • Don’t use antiperspirants: Antiperspirants can eliminate odor and reduce sweat production in the underarms, but you should not use them in your private area. While antiperspirant products can kill unwanted odor-producing bacteria, they can also disrupt the delicate balance of bacteria in and around the vagina. This disruption may increase the risk of bacterial vaginosis and yeast infections.
  • Change your pads regularly: Whether you use pads or tampons, be sure to change them often.
  • Diet: Being a disease that is located in the nervous system, it is necessary to suppress the consumption of caffeine, tobacco, and chocolate that produce acceleration and increase perspiration.

Excessive sweating should not limit your life in any way, since as you can see, there are many solutions that you can put into practice. If these measures aren’t working, you could have a condition called hyperhidrosis. See your doctor if the sweating is persistent or you notice an unusual odor 💗.
