I had to sign out for this, because this is embarrassing. I am a Senior Member that's been here for 12 years, and I just wanted to be anonymous for this.

I'm in my late 40s, and as I've gotten older, I have started to sweat more in the crotch. Having swamp ass is never fun, and I'm used to getting it when I work out or do activities outdoors. However, now, just from a hot day, standing in my classroom, I sweat to the point it looks like I've wet myself. It is so mortifying!!!

If you have the same problem, what do you do?! How do you handle it so people don't think you've peed yourself?! Any advice?

TIA!!!

Could you use pantyliners? I've seen them in different thicknesses.

I would recommend cotton underwear or other breathable ones and loose clothing.

This is why women have used baby powder! Now that we know it isn’t safe, panty liners may be your best bet. Keep a few extra in your bag so you can change when they’re too damp. And yes, loose clothing and wicking underwear.

I don't have any additional ideas that haven't already been suggested, but have you talked with your doctor about this? There are treatments for overactive sweat glands that might help you.

Cornstarch baby powder works wonders.

There is such a thing as an antiperspirant formulated for this type of use. Not a deoderant, mind you, but a topical application that will keep you from sweating. I haven't used one, so I can't speak to how effective or irritating they are.

I think any type of pantyliner is just going to make the problem worse. I would opt for moisture-wicking underwear.

And, yes, it's worth mentioning to your doctor. Maybe you can be referred to a dermatologist and, in any case, increased sweating can sometimes indicate a health issue.

Wearing a pantyliner can actually cause you to sweat more. Many are made of material that is not breathable. If you go that route, try to choose an all cotton liner.

Other things to try:
* Corn starch based powder
* Trimming up a bit
* moisture wicking/breathable clothing
* loose clothing

DH has hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and his trouble areas are his arm pits and his groin area. His doctor gave him Drysol ( an antiperspirant which contains aluminum chloride) which can be applied to the groin area.

I bet period undies would work too! They absorb blood, so I'm sure they'd easily absorb sweat as well .
