Ok so this year seems to be really bad for my chafe. I came home last night and my thigh was bleeding a little. Anyone else have problems with chafing? Howd you solve it? Ive tried goldbond, goldbond foot stuff, monkey butt powder. It all didnt work.

    There are actually products out there just for the problem. Powders aren't really a great option because inevitably sweat, rain, or any other moisture will turn nice powder into a disgusting mess of powder goop and stench.

    Instead, try lube... like... this stuff:

    http://www.amazon.com/Lube-Stick-Runners-2-25-Oz/dp/B000TS8MHG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=hpc&qid=1252356323&sr=8-1

    Distance runners use it all the time to prevent chafing and supposedly it works quite well. A friend recently ran a half-marathon and loved the stuff. There are other brands of course, that's just an example.

    Ha, what an uncomfortable subject. A cyclist friend at work uses Chamois Butt'r. I don't know why it wouldn't also work well in this context.

    I go to tons of conferences a year (the largest being SXSW, where I cover several miles of walking daily for 6 days straight) and I probably would be crippled without Body Glide. It's a bit nasty feeling at first, but at the end of the day when you're pain-free, you'll be thankful. They have it at most sporting goods stores, in the running section.

    I would recommend a pair of shorts similar to those used by cyclists. I know Jockey makes some which are available at Fred Meyer. The lifetime of the material isn't infinite, of course, but they can last for a few months and you don't have to apply anything nasty.

    I will check the label and post the material in an edit when the wash is done :P

    Hope this helps :)

    Yeah that was seriously uncalled for. I have never been obese and I've experienced it too. It's a human kinda thing, not that you would know anything about being a real human being.

    This.

    I participate in triathlon and prior to discovering BodyGlide I got some pretty nasty bleeding chafes on my inner thighs. (You try riding 113 miles on a bike and see how you feel! Oh, and don't forget to run a full marathon afterwards, juts for fun...)

    Chamois Butt'r is great for bike riding because you can slap it on one specific location and as long as you only perform one specific action, it stays there. But it doesn't hold up well enough for anything that involves a variety of different actions. So if you were going to be walking, sitting, standing, walking some more, sitting, standing, et al, I wouldn't have confidence in it.

    Of course everyone is different and has different preferences. One of my fellow triathletes swears that a low-tech swipe of vaseline is the perfect solution. Go figure.

    Were your legs bare where they were rubbing together? Best solution I've found is to wear whatever fit of underwear covers those parts.

    I completely agree. I had to go on a trip to Montreal for work one time and walking around in the humid air was killing me.. After I came back from my trip I decided to do some more walking but before I could, I would have to find a solution to this problem. The answer.... was boxer briefs.

    My friend and I actually were talking about this after the concert on Saturday while walking back to the car haha. He had come to the same conclusion as I had independently.

    Good Luck

    Sometimes tho, the boxer briefs can ride up the leg providing bare, chafeable skin.

    In which case, I say go to GI Joes or someplace and get a cheap pair of Underarmor shorts.

    Wear em as underwear if you like, believe me they feel good.
