If, by between the legs, you mean your groin area, it sounds like chafing. Wear a good pair of boxer briefs...never boxers. Boxer briefs prevent skin from rubbing skin up in that region...boxers don't. Plus, it doesn't hurt to apply some absorbent powder around the area before you head out for the day, and maybe a few times throughout the day.

oh man that sucks...i get that sometimes if i go walking/running for miles...best thing is don't wear any underwear at all lol...it works...even with briefs the edge of the briefs can rub you raw as well.

Trust me, that is FAR from the best thing to do. Anytime skin rubs skin (especially when you're sweating), chafing will be a problem. Again, a good pair of boxer briefs will prevent it. Last spring I always wore boxers, and on hotter days, chafing occurred. But ever since then I've been wearing Under Armor boxer briefs and haven't had a problem.

Under Armour underwear briefs will help with the issue you describe.

You could wear a thong and "wick" the sweat right out of there. :D

When you grow up things will change trust me.

get heat rash sometimes, smear vaseline in the area before you go to work, also soaking in a tub when u get it will sting at first, but will then hydrate the skin and help relief.

Buy a tube of A& D ointment put it on at night and you will be like new in the morning. If you had kids you used it on them for diaper rash, works great.

Boudreaux's Butt Paste works good. The moisture wicking undershorts work well too.

Under Armour underwear boxer briefs will help with the issue you describe.

Go to Target and get their version of this. The same quality at 1/4 of the price.

I have heard that, but I have UA outlet here in Orlando, this makes them very affordable and way under retail.

I am sorry to say it because I realize it is a serious issue but this is one hilarious thread.

Now, my recommendation...
Try some regular work pants like Khaki pants if you normally wear jeans, or vice versa,
it could be the tightness of the cloth, on that note if your pants are tight try wearing
looser ones or if they're loose try something a little bit fitter.

That, in my opinion, is at the root of the problem, is either the fit or possibly the material.

On another note 36 apparently may not be as grown up as you'd think :p

How long have you been mowing? And you're just now getting it?

See that's the thing I've been mowing for like 15 years and have only had this a handful of times!
I never posted something like this but the only reason I did was because I was in soooooo much pain it just went to my head lol!
I wear boxer briefs everyday and that day it was hot as he'll and I was wearing some tight jeans so now I carry khaki shorts to change into if it gets how.... Also I was sweating... "down there"
That's why I think I got it! My guys said I gotta learn how to watch what goes up my @$$

I....well my wife! Put on some bassoons like stuff and some meliluca (spelling) oil on it...went to sleep oily and greasy that night but then woke up could barely feel it! Deff. Healed majority of pain

This post is kinda funny, however i wish it was here before....I had a HUGE problem with this last year, i tried everything, baby power, gold bond, gold bond max The ONLY thing that works for me is DESATIN REGULAR STRENGTH ( i tried the max stuff its to thick) This stuff is for diaper rash but it works great ! I smear it right where my legs meet my torso and im good to go. I carry a tube in the truck too in case things get bad.

This thread is great! But a good one, gold bond for me, it really bites when it happens. Also get it on the motorcycle with long rides.

I'm glad i'm not the only one that gets chaffed.LOL. Goldbond medicaded powder and Aquophor baby healing cream works for me.

I get it too...... I use Secret womans deodorant, roll on type, down there every morning and it prevents it. I usually freeball, and wear thin cotton shorts.
