  • Monastat makes an anti-chafing gel that works may also try using sticks to the skin better. If you are working out you may want to wear bike shorts under your pants to cover your thighs well, assuming that is where the problem is. Try to always have your pants fit properly, meaning dont let the crotch hang low. To help the rash heal try taking a bath with aveeno oatmeal bath soak and let it air dry as much as possible. Dont sleep with tight clothing on. These things have helped me the most, but really once I realize that my clothes were ill fitting and began wearing better fitting clothes it never happened again.

  • Aerosol deodorant (like Suave) works best at preventing AND allowing time for the rashes to heal. I've been using it for years, and it's a cheap remedy.

  • Silky Sheets spray. It's a talc based spray that leaves you feeling super silky. It #1 reduces friction, and #2 absorbs perspiration.
    Lots of scents. Just google it and it should come up!
