feminine odor

Lately its been really hot at work and I am perspiring. As the day goes on, I notice an odor coming from down below. I'm sure its caused from sweat. It is really bugging me, and I'm not sure if it is noticeable. Any suggestions on what to do to prevent or mask it?

Re: feminine odor

I've heard wearing cotton panties can be highly beneficial and not irritate the vagina. Or, use a panty liner and add feminine spray. Also, you might try some powder between the thighs, it might help keep the sweat at bay.

Thumbs up Re: feminine odor

I agree with the other poster..cotton panties, a couple panty liners to change throughout the day, baby powder, and last but not least FDS (feminine deodorant spray). Spray this directly on your underwear and yourself. Its harmless and works wonders. In case you've never heard of it..its usually located by the tampon section in Rite Aid or stores the like.

There is one other thing that I would suggest. Baby wipes. Carry a travel packet with you and give yourself a good wipe in the restroom a couple times during the day. That will really help keep you fresh.

Hope this helps.

Re: feminine odor

Thanks, I actually tried the cornstarch baby powder yesterday and it was better. And I only wear cotton, I think that's part of the prob - they are wet from the perspiration and stay damp thru the day. I guess I will have to start taking a pair to change into at middle of the day. Other people have been complaining about the heat in the office, so maybe I'm not the only one suffering!

Re: feminine odor

I have the same problem! Glad I'm not the only one. I have noticed that wipes do make a difference. You feel clean and dry again... Give them a shot. Good luck to both of us!!! lol

Re: feminine odor

Cotton panites are the best to wear. Use the femine wipes and just try to keep it dry. I wouldn't spray anything down there as so many of the women are allergic to the chemicals or scents. It can irritate. I used to put cornstarch there and then use the wipes. It helped alot. Good luck!!!1 ^;;^)))~~~
