Some serious "chaffing"!!!

i'm am sure most of you know what chaffing is...i cannot figure out what to use..i have tried baby powder, gold bond, starch etc...someone suggest vasoline...i guess i will give it a try...i cut today from 8am to 630pm and i could barely walk by the last yard...for those of you that do not know what i am talking about, chaffing is when the material b tween the tops of your thighs rubs you litterally raw..i have also tried boxers, boxer briefs..i currently wear whitie tighty's..if anyone has any secrets plz share..i know there will be some wise cracks on this one...i can take it, but i seriously hope i get some good input, this stuff hurts like hell...

Loose clothing has helped. I went from tighty whiteties to boxer briefs (that helped alot). Loose pants also helps tremndously (no jeans). Gold bond is my life saver. When you get to your situation, you have to use the medicated cream. I now take it with me as part of my landscaper survival kit.

Good luck to ya.

As if this post needed another straightman setup...

Vasoline is what some runners use.

I have found A&D ointment has been the best for chaffing.

i have a w/b w/ sulkie..had my brother trimming and edging today too...bout the only walking that i did today was some blowing and a few zero lots that the w/b was not used...i sweat extremely bad...by the second or third yard my shirt is completely wet and my shorts are halfway wet..i do wear loose shorts..my legs are pretty thick up top and when i walk the inside of my thighs rub..the shorts get wet, and no matter what kind of underwear i use everything gets all bunched up and starts a rubbin..15-20 yards later in a day and i am having a fit...i can damn near work through almost any ailment, pain, soreness etc, but this ---- is almost unbearable...i guess i will have to try the medicated gold bond...

LGF---what kind of spray are you talking bout???

I wear the tight sport underwear that has long legs. They almost reach my knees. Jockey makes the best. this helps me from getting chaffed. And always use medicated powder everyday. I sweat 10 gallons everyday with about three changes of clothing.

Then loose weight!


Sorry... I am just doing my LGF impression.

I noticed it kinda goes away after a while, w/ the use of goldbond morning/and night. I hope you find a soulition, Cuz I know how much of a pain in the A%^ it is.
