Yes, It hurts.

Does anyone have any tips for prevention ? Should I wear bike pants under my pants when I exercise ? :lol:

Yes! Absolutely says she of horrible welts on the inner thigh in days of yore. :oops:

I always wear bike shorts under shorts or track pants when I run or walk long distance. Next best thing is some 'sports shield' or 'body glide' which is kind of like vaseline on a stick. It's better than vaseline because it's a breathable substance.

And doesn't STING when you get in the shower? Best remedy I've found is Savlon - cool and soothing :P
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

pawpaw ointment is good for soothing it once you've got it. it's also used for nappy rash :lol:
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

oh i sympathise with you.. i get this all the time... i cant walk in skirts.. they are ok for around the office but if i actually have to walk anywhere i have to wear pants

chub rub sucks... bike shorts seems like a great idea :) or those leggingy type pants that everyone seems to wear these days.

I cant wait till the day when chaffing is gone. I usually only get it in summer when i wear skirts for work. I usually lather moisturisor on my thighs.

But i would say for exercise to wear bike shorts underneath.

Has anyone tried Sudocrem before ? I just got home from the pharmacy and the pharmacist said that it'd help in the prevention and treatment of chafing.

I'm going to try it out when I go walkabout this afternoon, and it's warm outside so the conditions are "perfect".

I'll report back tonight whether or not it is a viable option :wink:

*edit*

I just opened the jar and rubbed some on the back of my hands to see what the consistency was like - seems like I'll have to apply the stuff with a spatula, haha :lol:

sudocrem was designed with babies in mind. whilst pregnant you get heaps of sample tubs to use on bubs when theyre born. its fantastic for nappy rash and as a barrier. its thick like zinc but its great to use for bubs :) i hope it works well for you too

Omg, I know!

I looked it up online when I got home and I was like "I don't have nappy rash!" :lol:

THANKFULLY, the pharmacist was right, Sudocrem worked a charm.

I walked 4.5 kms yesterday, took between 1 hour and 1 1/2 hours, got very sweaty (!) and still - no chafing!

Obviously I could feel it wearing off nearer to my destination, but to be honest I didn't put much on and I'm very pleased with the results! (and I'm sorry to be gross, but I was even MORE pleased that the cream is odourless!!!).

The outcome might differ, depending on what kind of workout people are doing, but at $14.95 I highly recommend it! :o
