How can I sweat less in my vaginal area?

How can I stop sweating and burning in my vaginal area.  I have hypothyroidism which makes me sweat more especially when I work out.

My dermatologist recommended a powder called “Anti-Monkey Butt” powder.  I use it under the breasts, and creases of my legs, the inside of my thighs, etc.  It really helps keep me dryer and eliminates chafing.

I use summer's eve anti chafing gel and it works pretty well. I have a thyroid problem too even though mine is under control because of meds. Hope this helps

Summer's eve used to be a douche but think that may be taken off the market now due to it always causing yeast infections in women.  I never heard of the chafing gel. Glad you have your thyroid issue under control. What do you take for that? Was it a long process to get it there?

It would seem that wearing something more absorbent, looser, or a fabric designed to be wicking of the sweat is the way to handle sweat per se. If the problem is that you want to sweat less primarily because the sweat burns, then I'd talk to your doctor about adusting your thyroid medications, or talk to a dermatologist to see if there is any topical cream that can be put on the skin.
