It is natural sweating

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Welcome to Health Care Magic, Thanks for writing to us,

I am Dr.Muhammad Ahmad, I have read your question, I understand your concern and will try to help you in the best possible way.

Main purpose of putting testis in scrotal sac and hanging it out of the body is to keep testes cooler than other parts of body because testes function at a cooler temperature compared to other parts of the body.


Other than keeping it out of the body nature also provided testes with some other mechanisms of getting cooled down, one mechanism is think scrotal skin which due to it being thin, keeps loosing heat.

And other mechanism is the seat glands present on the skin.

Scrotal skin has sweat glands on it which keep the testes cool by evaporation.
Every one in this world has wet testes in warm , humid environment,

some may have somewhat drier testes some may have a bit more wet version but no one has absolutely sweat free scrotum.

This is same like some people get drenched in sweat on a given temperature and others don't.

Same is the case with you , your sweat glands are more sensitive and they are more active.

Frankly speaking this will not get cured by any med in my opinion.

I would suggest you wear more absorptive forms of under wears or use talcum powder to control the wetness.

I would also suggest you not panic in this regard , this is some what natural, sweat glands may get more sensitive with age probably that's why you are realizing it more now but you should not be much anxious about this.






....

I Hope this answers your question, if your have more queries feel free to ask, otherwise close the discussion and rate it. Wish you the best of health.



Regards,

Dr.Muhammad Ahmad.
