Why Does My Butt Sweat So Much? – Fighting Swamp Ass

Swamp ass is something we all dread, but it still happens all the time — especially in the summer. If you want to fight back against butt sweat, you need knowledge, and that starts with understanding how and why your butt sweats in the first place.

Why Does My Butt Sweat?

Butt sweat, like any sweat, is caused by the triggering of specific glands. In general, your body uses eccrine and apocrine glands to create sweat. Eccrine are the more common glands and sit near the surface of your skin. Apocrine glands are the ones that get deep with hair follicles, and you can find them in your pits and groin. Thankfully, you only have eccrine glands on your butt (apocrine sweat smells much worse).

You already know that your butt will sweat when it gets hot, but there are a few things that can contribute and make you sweat even more: genetics, body weight and hormones. One of those things is more controllable than the other two, and it will be part of our focus on how you can manage your butt sweat.

How to Prevent Butt Sweat

The best way to deal with butt sweat is to stop it before it happens, right? All of these tips are designed to help you prevent and minimize butt sweat. A little later, we’ll talk about ways to manage the butt sweat when it inevitably arises.

Moisture Wicking Underwear

Moisture-wicking underwear is your best weapon. It helps control the buildup of sweat on your butt. This helps you avoid sweat stains and marks on a really hot day. When you don’t have access to good moisture-wicking underwear, then bring extra and change as often as you need. On top of that, you should consider boxers whenever you don’t need extra support. They breathe a lot better and chafe less. You can also use vaseline when you run into chafing issues. Anti-chafing boxers are another viable option.

Wear Looser Fitting Pants

There is a time and place for pants that show off your butt. That time is not when you’re rocking a posterior flop sweat. Looser pants, especially when you’re working out or expecting to be hot make a big difference.

Wear Dark Pants If This isn’t an Option

When you can’t wear loose pants, darker colors hide sweat stains. You can also stay off your bum to prevent any build-up of sweat. The more you stand, the better off you are.

Keep Yourself Clean

It should go without saying, but hygiene is a powerful weapon in the war against butt sweat.

Use Wipes

Treated wipes are an amazing way to remove sweat, cool yourself down and keep your body odor under control. As long as your wipes are gentle, you can use them as often as necessary. You should consider taking your male hygiene wipes with you wherever you go.

Use Antiperspirant

Antiperspirant is an obvious way to battle sweat, but there are a lot of misconceptions surrounding this idea. Most good antiperspirants are going to have aluminum. It’s the active ingredient, and it will work on your butt. This is not to be confused with deodorant — which only focuses on making your sweat smell nice.

Apply Powder

Aside from antiperspirants, you can use other formulas that help manage moisture. Medical powder and other substitutes are viable.

Shaving

It’s overlooked, but shaving asshair can also help. Hair collects and traps moisture. If you stay smooth on your bottom, you’ll get less of that and it will be easier to control the sweating. It doesn’t have to be a difficult process. A men’s electric trimmer can do most of the work with very little risk of cuts, nicks, or other problems.

Organic Options

There are all-natural things you can use to combat sweat as well.

Chamomile Tea

Tea treatments work in two ways. Drinking it can actually reduce how much you sweat (but maybe don’t drink it piping hot). If that’s not enough, you can use the tea as a topical treatment on your butt or any other sweaty area.

Sage and Black Tea

Sage and black tea work just like chamomile. The difference is in the aroma of the substance. Whichever smell you prefer should be the one you drink and use topically for your sweat. You can also change it up. They all work.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Do not use vinegar as a topical treatment. It might actually work, but then you smell like vinegar. That’s not an improvement. Instead, you want to consume two teaspoons of the stuff. It’s fine if you need to mix it with a drink to get it down. It will reduce how much you sweat. Also, it works best on an empty stomach, so do it between meals.

Diet & Lifestyle

Two of the best things you can do to control your sweat are the same things you can do for every other aspect of your life. Diet and exercise are everything — even when you’re worried about the sweat running down your crack.

Exercise

Let’s talk about exercise. If you get a good workout, you will build up body heat and break a strong sweat. There’s really no escaping it. Here’s what’s interesting. When you’re fit, you can actually reduce how much you sweat between workouts. Excessive body weight tends to increase sweating, so regular exercise is actually a preventative measure here.

Breathing Exercises

Stress sweat is the worst sweat, whether it’s on your butt or not. Breathing exercises are about conquering stress, both physical and mental, and entering a relaxed, controlled state. You can use breathing exercises to reduce excessive sweat. You don’t have to be a Yoga master for this. Basic deep breathing will suffice.

Meditation

Meditation takes your breathing exercises to the next level. When your mind is healthy, your body will respond. Learn to meditate and do it frequently. It will help your sweat and a whole lot more along the way.

How to Avoid Butt Sweat

So, these are tips that help you adapt to sweaty conditions. Sometimes, the things you’re doing make you sweat more. Other times, it’s the things you aren’t doing that are the problem.

Stay Away From Unbreathable Fabrics

Fabrics are so important. There’s a reason sportswear is all made from breathable, moisture-wicking fabrics. They help you control your sweat, so as much as possible, stick to fabrics that breathe. Leather is an enemy. More commonly, wet or damp clothes are an enemy. Make sure you change after you sweat a bunch, or else you create a negative feedback loop. Similarly, don’t hang out in your wet swim trunks.

Avoid Using Deodorant on Your Butt

We talked about antiperspirants and deodorants. Your butt does not excrete the smelly kind of sweat. You don’t need deodorants for it. In fact, it can be a little weird if your butt is giving off aromas. Control the sweat; don’t worry about the smell.

Keep Your Diet Clean

Despite everything in the section above, there is an exception. Your diet can make any sweat smell bad, so treat your body like a temple. Additionally, spicy foods, caffeine, and salt can all contribute to excessive sweat. Along those lines, smoking and drinking are things to avoid.

When to See a Doctor for Butt Sweat

In almost all cases, butt sweat is harmless — well, maybe not to your social life. There are times when your sweat might be a cause for concern. A few things to think about are sudden changes in how much you sweat, new odors in your sweat, and conditions accompanying your sweat. If you get unexpected rashes, discoloration, or other issues with your butt, keep reading. There are times to see a doctor about this stuff.

Underlying Conditions

There are a fair few conditions that can contribute to butt sweat (and sweat in general). These are the things you want to keep an eye on if you’re having problems with sweat:

  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Hyperhidrosis
  • Menopause
  • Nervous system disorders
  • Diabetes
  • Some types of cancer

Alcohol abuse and certain medications can also get you nice and sweaty, so keep all of that in mind. If you’re ever unsure about your sweat and what it means, give your doctor a visit.

Skin Infections

Your last big sweat producer is skin infections. They come in all shapes in sizes. You can get the relatively common fungus of athlete’s foot. You can get rare tropical diseases that will get you published in a journal. The rule is simple. If you have signs of a skin infection, go see the doctor. Some of them are easy enough to treat, but any infection left unchecked can become serious. There's no reason to mess around.
