Thank you for visiting

The acne is caused by sweat and chafing between the legs. It is therefore, advisable to wear cotton underwear and if you are overweight, to loose weight. You can also have yourself tested for diabetes, as this might also be a cause for the acne. You can apply Differen gel to alleviate the symptoms, as well as treat the acne.

Kind regards
