    what do you guys use on your balls? Redic's have a smell to them, and i know he washes them, but they still smell weird. its hard to explain, but its not exactly pleasant.... He washes them 2 or 3 times each time he showers, but the smell still lingers. musty sweat maybe? i guess thats the best way to describe it?

    Being in the Medical field I'll start by saying there can be many causes. The general location between the legs places them in a hot, humid mostly dark place. This places them in a high risk area for moisture to build up like sweat, urine, ect increasing the Odor you perceive. Some Men are more pron to this by having higher hormone levels which just can't be helped. Moisture can build up no matter what you do. But there are steps you can take to eliminate or lessen the smell. First Wash them well with soap and warm water. Next make sure that area is rinsed well. Any left over soap can dry the skin and that will attract body oil, sweat ect. Next make sure they are dry once your out of the shower. Any left over moisture can lead to that dank , musty smell you may be referring to. After this underwear can really make a difference. Most men wear boxer but to keep that area dry you really need briefs. They are made of cotton and help absorbs the sweat as boxers do not. Boxers are loose fitting and there is nothing for the sweat to adhere to. During the day carry wet wipes with you as you go to the mens room every now and then wipe up. This helps using the ones that are anti bacterial. I recommend baby wipes as they are all hypoallergenic and won't break you out or irritate the skin. Last use baby powder or I like gold bond powder and just a little will do which will keep thing dry and mostly odor free and keep you feeling cooler during the day. After these steps if the odor continues or you see a milky or yellowish film on them you may be looking at a fungal infection (ie:yeast infection). Any good fungicide cream or spray from your druggist (they can recommend one for you) will kill this out. I hope this helps. Sorry for being long winded

    That can help. Just have to keep the guys dry and aired out. I'm thinking that the same principles apply to your lady parts.

    yeah, you're right. i use a special wash down there and keep it as dry as i can. the difference is, when i wash, it smells clean.... when he does, the smell lingers.

    Everyone has a scent. Some folks stronger than others. If he's washing, then it's probably just natural.

    One more thing to add...

    As convenient as showers may be, there's just no substitute for soaking one's dingles in a nice hot bath.

    Make him hang upside down outside on the clothes line for a couple of hours to let the breeze air him out. That's what my wife does to me...

    This time of the year baby power, or especially talcum powder, are a must. I also wear boxer briefs and have no issues what so ever. My 2 cents.
