Customer Question
Hello, I'm 53 years old...
Hello, I'm 53 years old and am in peri-menopause (I haven't had a period in 6 years). I sweat in my crotch area so badly that I have to change my underwear 3 to 4 times a day. I've always have a sweaty smell, even after I take a shower, and ever since I was 12 years old. I have been battling this problem for most of my life and thought it would go away as I got older, but it's still the same. This problem has caused me to not be near people because I'm so aware of the smell through my clothes. I no longer want to be near my husband either because I think it's gotten worse in the last 2 years. Can you suggest anything?

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
