    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.

    ahhh first time with monkey butt....You will never leave for work without powdering up again! Boxer briefs and gold bond medicated work best...

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