    Gold Bond. Nice and cool feeling unless you like smelling like a toddler. That will go right along with the Depends for Landscapers by Duluth.:usflag:

    I find it to be most effective in the preventative stages of the waddle, however it also works to help sooth the waddle to a more shuffle like state.:cool2:

    I have used my baby daughter's diaper rash cream before. Does solve the problem but not a permanent solution.

    This thread is so funny and seems to pop up annually.

    A 47 yr old first week working for me last August called in on the 3rd day due to blisters. I always assumed people just knew powder is the answer. Another guy 35 yrs old I mentioned 2 yrs ago about gold bond and he's never had a issue since.

    To answer the question. Any underwear works if you use gold bond daily (or the generic brand). It's cheap, keeps everything dry, and keeps the truck from smelling like butt.

    No powder ever here...just the Champion boxer briefs from Target. Not saying I've ever not waddled though...LOL

    I experienced a little chaffing yesterday. The waddle was in full effect by days end too.

    I wear cycling bib shorts, and under armor running shorts. I get chafed just thinking about it. Both of these fit tight and I get no more rashes. I also use gold bond in the green bottle.
