here's a weird one

anyone ever have their perspiration turn color?

I have crohn's night sweats complicated by I'm medicated to sleep but even so have to get up at least once a night to change my nightclothes cos they're soaked...

over the last week er so I've noticed that all of a sudden the collar's of my night clothes have turned a dirty yellow won't wash out....and I can't figure out why?

there's be no grand change (or minor for that matter) in diet, bathing schedule remains the same, soaps and detergents are still all natural, no medication changes...just all of a sudden?

weird eh? (besides being gross I mean)

My Dear

Please have yourself checked for jaundice. The dirty yellow colour of sweat on clothes may be because of jaundice. Have it diagnosed at the earliest. Is your pee pale / dark yellow. What about your eyes. Do they look yellow.

Take care

Perspiration has the nasty habit of turning fabrics yellow. Yellow perspiration stains often occur in the armpits of shirts. This occurs in people free of disease. If you google "perspiration stain removal" you will find a bunch of different methods listed to remove the stains. I have tried many over the years and have never found anything to remove it all the way. Once the fabric turns yellow it is too late in my opinion. I have gotten wiser and now pay attention to possible stain sites before they change color.
