I​n general, odor from the groin is caused by the combination of sweat, body dander, and fecal bacteria.

There are several options for reducing the odor.

1. Visualize the skin in the groin to make sure there is no rash present. Sometimes a fungal rash can develop and cause a new odor to occur.

2. Try powder application after showers to soak up the sweat that develops in that region. This will reduce the odor.

3. Purchase deodorant/antiperspirant spray, and apply the spray to the groin at the beginning of each day to the groin.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
