Finally, I found a preventative for chafing.

At least this works for me and I tryed everything. The product is called "body glide". They carry it at some Dicks sporting goods stores, but I got mine on amazon.com. Just do a search for body glide on that site. Its kind of expensive, but it is well worth it. I was getting chafed really bad in the crotch area and between the buttocks really bad and it was making mowing very difficult some days. I apply this product before I go out and have since not had a problem. Hope this helps out anyone suffering like I was. Here is a link I found, but you might be able to find it cheaper if you shop around.

here's where having 4 kids comes in handy...

baby powder. then if you do get chapped...diaper rash cream. desitin if you got it...it has alot of zinc oxide active ingrediant. that stupid 'butt paste' crap dosn't work. just has a cute name.

I have one better than babypowder, corn starch. I used to work in the restaurant industry, and corn starch performed better than baby powder. It helped ease the pain of "swampnutz"

LOL, I never thought I'd be giving this tip out...

I don't know... I never found a cure-all.

At times I have a big problem with it on the sides of my legs.
I find that boxer briefs do wonders for this....
Provided they don't stretch into just boxers in an hour.

Helps to have something there to reduce the friction.
Baby powerers help too... to a point.
Again, the talc reduces the friction for a while.

Myself, I just use the boxer briefs and cool shorts.
When this starts to fail, I apply a little smooth dry anti-perspirant deodorant stick to the insides of my legs.
I think it's a sports talc kind.

Works wonders for that to a point.
But I don't see that working for other cases.

I'll have to check out that body glide stuff.
