How to Stop Sweaty, Smelly Balls

Let’s not sugarcoat it: some men’s balls can stink.

If you are such a man, you know that this problem can be extremely embarrassing, especially if you are in an intimate relationship that may require putting those balls on display.

Testicular odor is generally a result of sweat and bacteria. There is not much you can do about the sweat glands in your groin, but you can minimize the sweating and prevent offensive odor.

Shower regularly

Maintaining good personal hygiene is one of the most important things you can do to eliminate odor.

Regular showers, ideally at least once per day, will keep your body fresh and clean. Pay particular attention to your nether regions and make sure you wash up with a men’s body cleanser.

Right before you’re ready to get out, switch the water over to cool so that you don’t end up sweating straight out of the shower.

Be sure to thoroughly dry off your balls, too, so that you don’t have any lingering moisture down there.

Powder your thighs

Applying MenScience Advanced Body Powder to your inner thighs after a shower will help soak up any excess moisture from sweat, which will further prevent foul smells from wafting up from your groin.

Do not apply any type of deodorant directly to the balls, as this can cause irritation and inflammation.

Groom your hair down there

If you have hairy balls, they may be compounding the problem by absorbing and retaining all that sweat. Your groin hair can become a breeding ground for bacteria.

While you don’t have to shave incessantly – especially since it causes irritation — keeping groin hair neatly groomed and trimmed can only help.

Wear comfortable underwear

Okay, gentleman, don’t get your panties in a twist — literally.

Be sure you choose underwear that leaves your sensitive area with room to breathe. This will allow moisture and sweat to air out rather than stick to your balls and create bacteria heaven.

You should choose cotton underwear for maximum absorption and comfort. It’s a good idea to change your underwear daily to stay fresh.

Don’t be one of those guys with bad-smelling balls. Keep them clean and fresh with these easy steps.

You, and perhaps a special someone in your life, will be glad you did.
