See comment: If you think your vagina has more than usual secretion and its odor is annoying, i recommend to my patients to douche with 1/4 teaspoon vinegar or baking powder in 1/2 cup warm water... Consult with your doctor.

Botox: What you describe is called inguinal hyperhidrosis. It develops in some people after puberty. It can be very distressing. Treatment can be a topical antiperspirant such as aluminum chlorohydrate. It would need to be strong ones prescribed by a doctor. More effective treatment can be from Botox injection administered by an experienced dermatologist. There is help for this.

Check with Gyn: Vaginal odors are extremely common and there are many products available to treat this issue. Discuss with your dr. As they may be able to provide you with the best option for you, and they would also assure you do not have a bacterial vaginosis causing the odor. Best wishes.

Wash ; dry: There are sweat glands around the vulva and no, there isn't a way to eliminate them. What you can do to eliminate odors are to wash the area with dove, caress, or ivory soap, and dry thoroughly. Wear absorbent cotton crotch underwear to wick moisture away and make sure that the odor is not a vaginal infection by seeing a gyn md.

How can I use an exercise app to prevent cravings?

Not sure: Your question is not very clear. Craving for what? Food exercise, etc? Usually cravings are caused by repeated use of a substance, i.E caffeine, chocolate, etc; your body gets used to this; the best thing is to wean yourself off. You can go cold turkey or slow wean. Drink water because most things are dehydrating, chart to see triggers: menstrual cycle, moods, weather etc to prepare yourself.
