Whether you’re working out or just going through your daily tasks, extra perspiration down below is never fun. Ball sweat is a pretty universal experience and it’s not pleasant for anyone. The thing is, extra moisture in your nether regions can only add to more complex issues like rashes and irritation. Moisture can also lead to excess bacteria growing and causing even more problems.
Hyperhidrosis (the technical term for excess sweating), is very common in places with an excess of sweat glands. These include the underarms, palms, and the groin, so it’s no shock that ball sweat is a common issue among men. If you’re someone who has hyperhidrosis, the nerves in your body that are responsible for triggering your sweat glands are overactive, meaning more sweat. They are essentially telling your sweat glands to produce more moisture to help keep your body cool than is needed.
Keeping your moisture by your package at bay is super important to stay healthy, and you should take the proper steps to ensure that you can lessen the amount of sweat. Today, we’re going to briefly get into what you can do to avoid ball sweat.
It Starts with Hygiene
We’ve said this before, and we’ll say it again hygiene is very important when it comes to staying healthy down below. Without proper cleaning, you’ll experience nothing but itchy rashes, chafing irritations, and possibly even fungal or bacterial infection. If possible, shower daily making sure to use soap and scrub the family jewels. This goes double if you live more of an active lifestyle. Not only will you not have to worry about a stinky package, but you will also keep irritations and infections at bay.
If you shower frequently and still experience excessive ball sweat, then you should consider looking into an antiperspirant or deodorant for your package. A great product for this is Ballwash’s Ball Guard Liquid Powder. The great thing about it is it helps reduce sweat, irritation and odor while being free of talc, alcohol, parabens, sulfates, and synthetic dyes.
Next Is Fabric
We’ve spoken about fabric before, but if you’re trying to avoid ball sweat, then choosing a breathable and moisture wicking fabric like cotton or bamboo should be your go to. Bamboo is a great fabric as it is moisture wicking while being naturally antibacterial, allowing you to avoid bacteria growth down below. If you sweat often, especially by your package, choosing a breathable and moisture wicking fabric is sure to help with the excess moisture and keep your cool, dry, and comfortable all day long.
Finally is Fit
Though you might want to choose a pair of underwear that is form fitting and will hug your curves in all the right places, skin tight underwear isn’t always best. Choosing a loose boxer short that allows a ton of air flow is sure to keep you cool and dry. If you want to opt for more of a tight fit, we invite you to check out our pocket pouch line. The great thing about this style, is the pair is made with upper and lower pockets to separate your junk and keep it away from your skin. This separation is sure to help keep excessive sweating at bay. If you’re more of a free bird though, opting for a jockstrap or thong may be your go to.
Whatever you choose, as long as you choose a breathable fabric with the proper fit, and practice a fair amount of personal hygiene, you’re doing your due diligence to keep ball sweat at bay.
