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.

Vasoline is what some runners use.

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.

Here’s my solutions. No underware. Wear a long loose shirt that falls down over the front of the jeans. Why? Because during the heat of the day, my fly is WIDE open, and the shirt covers up even when the wind is blowing. That keeps things well ventilated which is the root cause of the problem. That being excess moisture in the nether regions. So you don’t want to use anything but a dry lubrication. That’s why you’ll ALWAYS find a box of Corn Starch just behind the seat of my truck. NOTHING works better. Instant relief, 100% dry lubrication, and it’s cheap so you can apply tons of it when needed. LOL

I have the miracle product. It is called lip medex by blistex. Make sure to get the blue can. About the same diameter as a quarter and around 1 1/2 tall. Sometimes very hard to find and other times I see shelves of it. I have recently seen it at CVS if you have any around you. As soon as you put it on you feel SOOOOO much better and can walk, jump, run, or whatever. If you put it on at night it will be all cleared up by morning. I use it on the onset of cold sores on my nose. As soon as you feel one coming on, keep appling it thru out the day and they go away before they get to sore. I also use it on cuts and oh yeah, my lips when they get chapped. Great stuff, I usually buy 2 or 3 cans when I find it just so I always have some.

I switched to boxers and loose clothing, it worked for me. I sweat more than normal also and had a serious chaffing problem until I made some changes. If you walk like John Wayne, you're out of luck though. Walk more like George Bush, he throws his legs out wide, maybe a product of working out. Watch him walk, he's pumped up and looks like he just came from the gym every time I see him on tv.

Cornstarch

As often as you need to during the day. Is much cheaper than most the other products listed and does the same thing.

Boxers are good if you like them. I have the long briefs, though they don't go down to my knees :confused:

steveo--unfortunately part of your problem is where you live.

an average day for you guys might be 92 degrees and 97% humidity.

for us the same day would be 83 degrees and 72% humidity.

try mowing in some poplin BDUs. they are great but you do look like the militia!:eek:
