Smelly groin

I am 21 years old now and now it stinks down there soetimes. I used to have sex about 1 a month now its is about 3 times a week, and I smell it every time I pull my pants down.

Not the girl wet smell, its different. It just started about 3 months ago and I'm starting to get paranoid about it. What could this be, anything to worry abut and how do I stop it.

Re: Smelly groin

Soap and water on a DAILY basis works wonders. Try it!

Re: Smelly groin

A couple of things.

Firstly are you circumcised? Sometimes on uncircumcised males, they produce a thing called smegma which is basically dead cells and oil gland secretions.

Secondly, it could be a fungal infection. Is it red or sore down there especially in the moist areas such as scrotum and perineum?

But yes, soap and water or just plain water is good to clean with!
