folliculitis and sweat

Recommended Posts

so ive realized the folliculitis in my stomache is very much due to sweating under tight, non-breathable fabrics. I'm going to try to buy lighter, looser clothing, but sometimes I have to wear clothes which will make me sweat, or must sit in sweaty clothes for a little bit after working out or dancing.

I was wondering what the thoughts were on using baby powder on my stomache to soak up sweat.

its noncomedogenic, right? but would it just turn into a big, sticky, white, blobby mess on my stomache? And would that further clog pores because the sweat is still there and now it has something to bind to rather than evaporate away?

i was trying to keep stridex pads in my purse to swipe there on hot days, but i always forget to as I go about my day, and sometimes i also dont get a chance to run to the bathroom to swipe or i'm wearing a dress and its a hassle, but ill continue to keep them around

thoughts? anyone? anyone else have sweat-induced folliculitis?
