Hello Dr.

My problem is that the higher inner area of my thighs are getting sweaty and smelly. This is not due to some phisical activity. I regulary take baths. I think this situation is not related to the underwear or clothes i wear, since it appears no matter what kind of underwear/clothes i wear at the moment.

Thanks.

You don't say whether you are a man or woman.  Women can get vaginal/genital odors that can be a sign of infection, especially with bacterial vaginosis or trichomonas.  No STD causes actual skin odor.  Often it's a sign of bacterial overgrowth, which is expecially common in overweight people.  I don't know of any solution other than what you're already doing--wash often, loose-fitting underwear, etc.

Sorry,

I'm 26 years old male. I have few extra pounds, but i'm not fat. My legs have always been more fat than the rest of my body.
