6 Problems That May Arise If You Stay In Sweaty Clothes For A Long Time

Although it might be tempting to run errands or grab brunch with your friends after hitting the gym, it's important to change out of your sweaty workout clothes beforehand. If you hit the gym hard enough, sweating is both inevitable and extremely beneficial to your health. But, not if that sweat and damp clothing lingers on your body for too long.

Here are Six things that can happen from staying in your sweaty clothes for an extended amount of time after you finish a workout.  

√Wet, sweaty clothing can trap dust and dirt that clogs pores and often leads to breakouts.

√If you think jock itch only affects men, think again. Jock itch is a fungal infection that takes places in sweaty and moist environments such as the groin area, inner thighs and butt.

√Although your sweat and clothes might dry after you leave the gym, the smell of your hard work will probably stick around.

√If you start to see red, acne-like bumps pop up on your butt, it's a good sign that you've been wearing your tight workout clothes too long. It also indicates that you're most likely suffering from a skin condition called folliculitis.  

√Wearing your wet workout clothes for an extended amount of time after the gym can increase your chances of developing a yeast infection. Yeast is a fungus that thrives in moist, hot areas.

√Those who don't change out of their sweaty clothes quickly after a workout or wash them regularly are at worse odds of developing infections from the bacteria.
