7 Steps to Stop Excessive Groin Sweating

Author: Jason Ellis

It’s the kind of thing most people don’t like to talk about.  When you can’t stop sweating a€œdown therea€, you don’t exactly want to put out an ad in the yellow pages, letting everyone know about it. Groin sweating affects millions of people and although so many are desperately searching for a solution, very few are providing one.  That’s because it’s such a taboo problem.  The term alone has a connotation of bad hygiene.  What guy or girl wants to admit that they’ve had such a problem, let alone spent their time outlining a plan of attack?

Well, my friends – I AM that guy.  Also, I can tell youa€¦

If the embarrassment of groin sweating isn’t enough to make you search for an alternative solution, certainly the discomfort is.  The constant perspiration in your groin and inner thighs causes TERRIBLE irritation, rashes, dryness, odor and a whole bunch of other problems.  Here, you’ll discover the 7 most effective and useful tactics for putting groin sweat to bed and PRONTO. Let’s get started and stop the sweat for good!

1.   Cool Down before you Start Up:

In order to start this process off on the right foot, it’s important that all your showers end with cold water.  You don’t have to freeze yourself right out of the shower.  In the beginning, use warm water to wash off.  As you get to the end of your shower time, gradually lower the temperature of the water until the last minute where you’re essentially showering your a€œgoodiesa€ with a super cold soak.  It will only be a little uncomfortable for a minute.

This technique avoids that annoying situation where you start sweating the moment you step out of the shower.  It will give you a nice head start for the next technique.

2.   Powdering Your Parts:

Once you get out of the shower, dry off THOROUGHLY.  You don’t want any kind of wetness in your nether regions so get aggressive with that towel.  Own every crevice!

Apply a fairly generous amount of talcum powder to your groin, buttocks, inner thighs and undercarriage – yes UNDERCARRIAGE (that’s my fancy medical term 🙂

Talcum powder will absorb any moisture that may come about during the day.  If you DO sweat, the perspiration will mix with the talcum and evaporate the powder, leaving you dry with a fresh scent.


If Talcum isn’t enough to do the job, try Goldbond’s Medicated Powder.  You can get this at most drugstores and it works very well.  Goldbond’s has a cooling effect so it will actually make your groin feel cooler (an interesting sensation the first time).  I love this stuff.  Goldbond’s also neutralizes itching and irritation so if the skin down there is already a bit sensitive or chaffed, this will be a tremendous relief for you.

3.   Wear Breathables:

I know it sounds like simple advice but the very first item you need to check off on your list is breathable underwear.  If you’re not wearing cotton – you’re doomed to fail at overcoming this problem.  Most of the time, breathable underwear won’t be enough to cure groin sweating alone.  However, it will help you along by strengthening the power of the previous solutions.

4.   Deodorize Your Thighs:

I know it sounds strange but layering on a thin coat of gentle deodorant will do wonders if you sweat from your inguinal region (inner thighs).  This crease between your groin and your inner thigh is where the problem generally starts.  Don’t go putting deodorant on your groin.  That has a€œbad ideaa€ written all over it.  Instead, try a very gentle antiperspirant like Hydrosal gel or even Degree on your inner thigh.  Remember, this is very sensitive skin so if irritation occurs, stop immediately.

5.   Avoid Loose Fitting Underwear:

Although it should be breathable, your underwear should be snug as well.  If clothes or underwear are too loose (for men especially), your thighs will rub against your groin more directly and cause the sweating to begin. 

6.   Heal Any Chaffing:

Before you do any of this stuff, make sure you’re dealing with a healthy situation down there.  If you have chaffing or a rash from prior sweating, attend to the irritation before drying out the area.

I mentioned Goldbond’s powder up above for preventing the sweat.  The brand also has a healing lotion, made specifically for chaffed skin.  You can also use Eucerin cream or Aquaphor (two moisturizing lotions) to treat the affected area. 

7.   Cut down on Cutting Down:

If you normally shave your spot down there, you may want to hold off or at least adjust the frequency of your intimate haircut schedule.  Although less hair on your groin will definitely decrease the amount of sweating, it will encourage irritation and chaffing. 

Start with these 7 steps and you’ll be off to a great start.  There are more advanced treatments like Botox for groin sweating (usually done on the inner thigh) but don’t run away with the idea of such an extreme remedy until you’ve tried out these practical ones.

  1. Does baby powder help stop your hands from sweating or clamming up?
    I’ve got really bad clammy hands, so I can’t hold my boyfriend’s hand without feeling like I’m grossing him out.
    I’ve heard baby powder helps, but I’m not sure..


  2. does baby powder help you stop sweating?


    • Yeah, baby powder would leave you smelling like a bathroom if you ask me. If you are having problems with sweat, wear a little deoderant and try this:

      Ok, this is going to sound crazy, but DRINK LOTS of WATER. I mean A Lot.

      It sounds like the last thing you’d want to do if you sweat badly, but I had a sweat problem for YEARS and tried everything under the sun. Then, a diet required me to drink ooodles of water all day long. The very first day that I did this, I stopped sweating from my arm pits. I can’t tell you how nice it was to go to meetings at work without these big puddles on my dress shirt. I don’t have to put so much deoderant on any more either (which by the way, gets into your clothes over time and doesn’t come out in the wash and the residue actually wicks moisture away from your armpits and makes the puddles look even worse).

      Now when I have an important meeting, I start drinking water in the morning and on the way to work, and by the time I get there, I’m totally dry! If I stop drinking water for a couple hours, it comes back a little and I just drink more. The results are immediate.

      I have no idea why it works. All I can say is if you have a sweat problem, try it today, and if it works, vote me for best answer 🙂

      Good luck!


  3. Does baby powder really work to stop excessive sweating?
    I bought Certain Dri roll-on a few days ago and it gets rid of some of the sweat, but not all of it. I was wondering if I can use baby powder with Certain Dri to help stop me sweating. If yes, do you apply it at night before or after you apply Certain Dri or in the morning before or after you apply Certain Dri AM?


    • Any powder just absorbs the moisture; it does not prevent it. Try other products. Mitchum works great and there are several clinical strength products out there also. If worst comes to worst, your doctor may be able to write you a script for something even stronger.


  4. Baby Powder – sweating?
    I know this sounds all feral and gross and stuff.. but i am almost 15 and my underarms sweat. like a bit more than usual.. never smells or anything.. they just sweat lol..
    its quite embarressing.
    how can i stop it?
    i heard baby powder.. does it work?
    anything else?


    • I heard many ways from different people here are some I have heard:

      1. Talcum powder – it’s suppose to keep the skin more dry and cool, but it does wear off quite quickly.

      2. apparently putting soap on them and drying it works, I thought it was bizzare, but I think it might acctually work.

      3. Deoderant sticks – they are really good and work better than roll-ons and sprays as it lasts much longer.

      hope this helps 🙂
