    Chaffing.....


    So... I recently started to develop a chaffing problem... It is been popin up when I run here and there but is getting worse to where just simply walking for extended periods of time (like at work) I start to chaff real badly. It is like right inbetween the thighs sorta behind the scrotum area and even on my taint!!! I am serious here it is gettin annoying, I had gotten some underarmour underwear shorts to help but its gettin ridiclous to wear them nearly everyday..

    any suggestions? or anyone with similar problems and how you solved it?

    I actually tried to research it and found a product bicyclist use called body glide. Dont know if it is legit and will work.. any info on that too would be good

    Thanks for the help and so for the graphic description

    well you might try the old babypowder solution. Boxers instead of briefs. And how tight are the upper pant legs? Do you need to get a fuller cut in the thigh part of the pants?

    I wear boxers when it happens... briefs are actually a lil better as it puts a barrier between my thighs from rubbing but now it is gettin chaffed on my taint.. i dunno what to do its driving me insane havin to waddle like a penguin

    I try and put some babypowder on tomorow for work see how that works.. I was thinkin maybe vaseline...

    no vaseline that will make things sticky, it's not a lubricant. It will rub like when you are sweaty. You need a smooth dry surface . Also is it with all pants/shorts or just jeans etc.?

    Baby powder may seem funky and has it's own smell but it's been a stand by for years & years

    Amazon.com: Mueller Lube Stick for Runners, 2.25 oz -#120205N: Sports & Outdoors

    Or Bag Balm from Walmart.

    Underwear is overrated, I just dab my thighs with either of them and take off.
