|Unlike most that reply with a lack of knowledge of the situation, and as a medical professional, I thought I might offer some helpful advise. Your situation which really doesn't have much to do with poor hygiene.
More than likely you have a type of yeast infection. Guys can get them too. They can be transmitted sexually or it can be a reaction to certain types of foods. As i'm sure you know bacteria like to thrive in dark moist places. After a shower and what not they get more active due to the moisture, heat, etc. Where on the body is it more moist, darker and hotter than in your genital area. We all have bacteria & yeast on your bodies and we all have the possibility of developing a bacterial and yeast infection. All you need is a tiny break in the skin and you have an infection.
Anyway, go to a real health food store; probably not a gnc or vitamin shop unless that's all you have. But look for something called "aciddophilus"; the yeast can not live in the body as long as your taking the aciddophilus. The "dophilus" is the main part of the name that your really looking for in the products.
A good brand is "jarro-dophilus eps"; there are other good brands as well. They do tend to be a bit pricy, around $18-$60 per bottle or package.
Try to get one that fights the most number of yeast bacteria stands. The jarro-dolphuis fights 8 different strands with good bacteria. They tend to work by using good bacteria to kill the bad bacteria. There is a bit of irony for you. Also diet can play an important role; if you can cut out white flour, mayo, cheese and dairy. You may be having an allergic reaction.
Another thing to get is to get a product that contains candida. "now" makes one called candida clear for around $14. This also fights the yeast infection.
Remember it's really not from poor hygiene; it's just life. Live, learn and move on. Good luck!
|I definately do not think it is a yeast infection whatsoever. So don't get your undies all in a bundle over that one. Showering more frequently (every day) will help alot. It is caused from the moisture and sweeting between your groin and your thigh. I then suggest grabbing yourself some Monistat soothing care chafing relief powder gel. Rub a little dime sized portion between thigh and groin in that crease. This stuff is amazing even on your hands it is sooo silky smooth and its not wet. This cuts down the sweating/moisture in that area therefore it wont get that scum or smell. I am quite sure this will work for you. It can be found in the womens aisle. Don't be embarassed to buy it because you will be extremely happy with it!|
