to think the worst part of the heatwave is the constantly sweaty (ahem) vulva?

Yes, I have NC'd for this. blush

Anyone else getting irritated by constant irritation due to the heat? The sweat causes 'paper cuts' and it stings when I have a bath etc.

Roll on autumn!!!

Don't have this. Sounds terrible though. I get sweaty underboob. grin

Agree about Autumn. Summer is something to be endured.

MrSpock Tue 24-Jul-18 18:25:59

Don’t get this but do get sweaty boobs! I can’t wait for the rain!

Yes I've had this. And I've been wearing lots of shorts under dresses to avoid chubrub but one day I wore footless tights and the pain afterwards was horrid! I was also (sorry tmi) a bit sore around my bum.

I actually ended up taking some thrush medicine as I decided maybe it was that - but maybe it was just the heat!

Since then have been trying to keep netherregions as cool as possible but not easy in this heat.

I have a sweaty groin and sweaty underboobs. I’m going through pants and bras like nobody’s business, only I don’t have that many bras.

Oh, and chub rub too, formwhich I have failed to find any workable solution, so that’s dresses out the window!

Honestly, if it was just a sweaty vulva, it wouldn’t be that big a deal! For me, it’s the fact that I sweat profusely from my forehead and upper lip - extremely embarrassing on public transport, particularly when you have to stand, but you can’t let go of the handle to wipe your face!!

There was a whole thread about 'minge mist' a while back!

I'm a jogger and get sweaty underboob. I fix it by cutting a sheet of kitchen roll in half and folding half a sheet under each boob.
Honestly stops any heat and sweat redness.

For any other sweaty areas just wear loose cotton clothing? confused

ChoccoBiccy66 Tue 24-Jul-18 18:41:20

I'll have to search the minge mist thread!!

I tried a bit of Canesten but it's done nothing, I genuinely think it is the sweat reacting to the skin down there!

Also a hands up for the chub rub and the sweaty bra straps...

Minge mist😂😂😂👏

thisneverendingsummer Tue 24-Jul-18 18:44:04

I think you mean VAGINA, not vulva. hmm

arranfan Tue 24-Jul-18 18:44:08

FabulouslyGlamorousFerret - I was thinking about that smile

Fanjo and minge mist

No, the worst is the nausea and headache.

The oppressive humidity.

Oliphantintheroom Tue 24-Jul-18 18:47:36

Vulva is the correct terminology for the outer parts thisneverendingsummer labia, clitoris etc
Vagina is the canal

CelebratedMonkey Tue 24-Jul-18 18:48:30

Yes it's definitely vulva...

I have some contact irritation around where my bra sits in my arm pit too. So gross.

I truly hate this weather.

Oliphantintheroom Tue 24-Jul-18 18:50:53

It doesn’t help with the sweating per se but I am so paranoid about smelling that I put deodorant on my bikini line, down the middle of my back and under my boobs.
I am looking forward to autumn!

ChoccoBiccy66 Tue 24-Jul-18 18:51:14

@thisneverendingsummer if your vagina is able to produce sweat then you need to make an appointment with your GP grin

😂😂😂 I think thisneverendingsummer is joking Oliphantintheroom

I don't get that so much as the under boob sweat. Well, sweat everywhere but that's the worst for me! 💦💦 💦

ChoccoBiccy66 Tue 24-Jul-18 18:51:56

Ah I have read that before @arranfan!

Littledidsheknow Tue 24-Jul-18 18:57:15

I'm a chub, so sweaty fanjo, underboob, hair, forehead and upper lip here. Also chub rub.sad

The "paper cuts" you describe sound awful though, OP... never heard of those before.

Icouldbehappy Tue 24-Jul-18 19:00:18

I’ve stopped wearing pants as I get too hot wink
I saw a post on Facebook the other day. It was a video of a woman on a bus, with her skirt lifted up, fanning her fanjo. Someone commented that it would sound like Peruvian pan pipes grin
I cackled with laughter at that! Though I didn’t comment or like it as I’m a teacher so I’m careful on Facebook wink

Icouldbehappy Tue 24-Jul-18 19:01:26

Oh and someone advised me to stick panty liners in my bra and this absorbs the sweat!
It works.
You’re welcome wink

My sweaty offering of the day: -
Ds1, who is 7, gave me a hug in the crowded corridor we were waiting in to pick up ds2. He then said in a really loud voice: -
"Mummy, why are you all wet?"
Thanks for that.
I am currently finding that a sweaty undercarriage is leading to chafing and the need to do contortions to put on plasters or slather with sudocrem.
I hate this weather.

GorgonLondon Tue 24-Jul-18 19:03:51

I don't get any of these.
Are you all on the larger side or is it just one of those things?
