Summer is here, and it's time for fun, sun, festivals, barbecues, and the beach! However, the high temperatures can sometimes lead to a 'serious' case of swamp ass. Swamp ass or booty dew is uncomfortable and can sometimes be embarrassing. While swamp ass is not usually a cause for concern, it can lead to the overgrowth of bacteria, causing skin itching and irritation. Ready to leave swamp ass behind? Keep reading to learn more about what causes swamp ass and how to prevent it from putting a damper on your summer plans.

Why Does Swamp Ass Happen?

Sweat Glands

Our bodies have two types of sweat glands, eccrine and apocrine glands. 

  • Eccrine glands are located on the skin's surface and can be found on different parts of the body. These glands emit an odorless sweat that helps cool down your skin by lowering your body temperature.
  • Apocrine glands are located mainly around the vulva and armpits; they produce a stinky, musty odor when we sweat.

Bad or Lack of Hygiene 

Bad hygiene habits or a lack of hygiene can lead to swamp ass; things like not wiping properly after a bowel movement or not showering regularly can lead to a buildup of sweat, moisture, and bacteria 'down there'. 

To avoid swamp ass, wipe your butt well after a bowel movement. In addition, shower at least once or twice daily and clean between your buttcheeks with a clean rag. If you are sensitive down there, use the Kushae gentle foaming wash for a more gentle clean. Don't forget to dry between your butt thoroughly to minimize moisture buildup.

Anxiety and Stress 

Emotional stress and anxiety can increase sweating because they activate the body's "fight-or-flight" response. Manage stress and avoid swamp ass by following these tips:

  • Take some deep breaths a few times a day - especially when you start feeling anxious. Close your eyes, let your breath be your anchor, and invite calmness into your soul.
  • Practice self-care, and engage in activities that bring you joy, whether it is a soothing bath, a walk in nature, or losing yourself in a captivating book.
  • Reach out to loved ones, friends, or support groups who understand and can lend a listening ear. Sharing burdens can lighten the load.
  • Seek Professional Help: Remember, seeking support is a sign of strength. Reach out to mental health professionals who can guide you toward a healthier, happier you.

Wearing Heavy, Unbreathable Fabrics

Wearing heavy and unbreathable fabrics like polyester, wool, and nylon can make swamp ass worse, especially in the summer. Opt for breathable clothing and underwear made from natural fibers like cotton, as these fabrics allow better air circulation and help absorb moisture, reducing the risk of bacterial growth and swamp ass.


Swamp ass can also happen because of a medical condition called hyperhidrosis. 

Those affected by hyperhidrosis naturally produce more sweat than others; this can lead to excessive sweating on the face, palms, scalp, feet, underarms, and even between the buttocks. 

Hyperhidrosis can also be the result of genetic factors or the result of underlying medical and health conditions, like:

  • Diabetes 
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Hormonal changes and imbalances caused by menopause or pregnancy
  • Brain and nerve disorders such as autonomic dysreflexia or Parkinson's disease

When to consult a Doctor 

Excessive butt sweat can be a cause for concern if it's impacting your daily life or accompanied by other symptoms like:

  • Soaking through clothes: If you find yourself consistently drenched down there, even without intense physical activity, it's worth discussing with your doctor.
  • Odor and irritation: If the sweat is causing persistent odor, discomfort, or skin irritation, it's time to get expert advice.
  • Sudden onset or change: If you notice a sudden increase in butt sweat or a significant change in how often you sweat, it's best to reach out to your doctor to rule out any underlying issues.
  • Sweating in other areas: Excessive sweating in multiple body areas including your butt, could be a sign of an underlying condition that needs to be evaluated by a physician.
