Embarrassing Male Crotch-Related Question [MI, to save those who don't wish to see crotch-related questions]
posted by emptybowl to Health & Fitness (25 answers total)
My crotch....well...basically.....reeks. Not, like, normal sits-in-your-pants-all-day sweat kind of reek, but make-your-eyes-water reek. I can smell it as soon as I take my pants off. I can smell it even after I've toweled off from showering. I mean, I like to feel I'm not an idiot, and that I know how to wash myself properly, but obviously something's wrong. I also have a small patch of skin on my left thigh, right where I "hang" (you know, I "hang" to the left), that sometimes gets bright red, and that seems to be where the stench is mainly located. The patch doesn't itch, isn't painful, or even tender. Just kinda there. And stinky. I've heard that some men put talc or baby powder down there to avoid moistness and irritation, but that just seems excessive to me, and the last thing I need it a cloud of dust in my crotch. Does anyone else have any suggestions/similar experiences?
