male gential odor antiperspirantsAntiperspirants, we use them, we seem to need them, and without them, we believe we would smell like rotten wildebeests and in most cases, we are not usually far from the truth. However, in recent times, it has been discovered that antiperspirants may be a major cause of male genital odor or even body odor.
If your penis smells like rotten egg and you are heavy on the direct to skin antiperspirants like rolls ons and gels, then you might want to ease up on the antiperspirants, if male genital odor products don’t work for you.

How do antiperspirants work?

Antiperspirants perform two functions.
1.      1. They reduce body odor, just the same way that deodorants do. This ,they do by reducing or eliminating   bacteria such as Escherichia coli that live on the skin and break down sweat to produce pungent smells. It is important to note that sweat in itself is mostly odourless but only when it comes into contact with the bacteria that lives on the skin does it begin to smell. Antiperspirants like deodorants aim at killing these bacteria.

2.       2.  They prevent sweating. Antiperspirants mix with moisture on the skin to form a gel that acts like a temporary sealant that blocks the pores from releasing sweat to the skin surface of the underarms.
The second function is what is believed to lead to body odor and eventually male genital odor. Sweating is a natural body function, sweating is the body’s natural cooling system that helps to regulate the body temperature when the body is heated up, or stressed.

 The apocrine glands, a type of sweat glands also releases some materials with sweat which also makes the skin an excretory organ since it eliminates waste from the body. When the armpit is completely blocked from releasing sweat, the body finds a way to send that sweat somewhere else such as the genitals producing male genital odor. This phenomenon also happens to people who get botox for their armpits to prevent them from sweating. A lot of such women reported extra unprecedented sweating from their asshole, their butt cracks, their genitals and inner thighs.

if only she told you that her butt crack is drenched in sweat

If male genital odor is an issue for you, it might be important to look into the kinds of antiperspirants you use. If possible, go without them and develop a clean lifestyle.

How to ensure you sweat less?

1.       Work in a temperature regulated environment to limit your body’s need to sweat
2.       Bath regularly to help eliminate the bacteria that might have gathered on your skin, this would prevent your sweat from developing a pungent odor

What are antiperspirant natural alternatives?.

Apart from the female and male genital odor causing properties of antiperspirants, some antiperspirants ingredients have been linked to cancer such as aluminum salts, preservatives and parabens contained in most antiperspirants. Here are a few alternatives to these antiperspirants
1. 1.     Using baking soda and corn starch:  This combination would kill the bacteria on the skin and thereby prevent body odor , it would however not prevent sweating that much , but it’s a better alternative
2.     2.   Lemon juice: Simply rubbing lemon juice on your armpit would prevent body odor as the citric acid in lemon juice  would kill odor causing bacteria.
3.      4.  Reduce the consumption of food that cause the body to sweat and cause odor.
4.      5. Use an organic  product:  These products are made from every day organic materials and ingredients that not only spare the user from the consequences of the harsh chemicals sometimes found in unnatural antiperspirants but would also kill odor causing bacteria and help regulate the body’s temperature thereby reducing sweating.
