    I've spent a lot of time on these forums lately and my girlfriend decided she wanted to ask a questions so I'm writing this for her by proxy:

    Last year, I would get that mean little rash between the legs and I was constantly complaining about it. She bought me diaper rash cream, baby powder, wet wipes, all that stuff.

    So basically, she wants to know how we can deal with that this year so she can take care of her "hard working man" :laugh:

    Is there certain creams you guys wear? Underwear that helps prevent it? Soap? ;)

    Gold Bond powder or anti fugal spray powder. It's sweat that sits there and gets rubbed and irritates the skin ....

    Gold bond is the answer. But too much info

    So, this is what your girl can get to help her baby........

    Try A+D Zinc Oxide Cream NOT the Original formula(it's too thick to rub in well) The label for the good stuff is blue/purple and yellow and not brown and yellow. Most mothers have already used this stuff for years. Works great and lasts. Here in Florida it better.


    > A+D® Zinc Oxide Cream

    If a rash does occur, A+D® Zinc Oxide contains the #1 pediatrician- recommended ingredient for treating diaper rash. Nothing is more effective. :walking:

    Definintly try the Under Armour boxers, if those don't work try some loose fitting biking shorts (spandex). I don't know too much about the creams.

    I like plain cornstarch that you buy in the cooking section. This is what we always kept out for everyone at the cattle sellbarn and I still use it. Keep some on hand and I bet you will not get gaulded anymore.
