    Ok, kinda personal, but I need help. I am on a new exercise/diet, and have been working out every night. I now have a rash on my inner thigh. Will vaseline work? Don't have anything special on hand, and it hurts!!! Any ideas? Help please, or I might just loose my desire to keep exercising! [​IMG] Steph

    Do you have any kind of powder? Even just cornstarch from the kitchen will work to help soothe it. Vaseline tends to clog pores and is just not really nice to your skin. Anddddd........last but not least, get in some nice, snug fitting, stretchy, work out pants...they will go a long way toward preventing any rubbing. [​IMG]

    Yes, baby powder should be just fine. Just keep it to the thighs and not...alright, this is a family friendly site.....let's say, not anywhere it could cause concerns over cervical cancer. [​IMG] Yeah, they are the ultimate fashion accessory.......I love to power walk.....I am sure the world LOVES my jiggly rear in my snuggy pants!!!! LOL Sorry for the lovely imagery. LOL

    Let it dry out, don't put a band aid or vaseline on it, it will just keep it from drying out. Put some ice on it and wash it and dry it. It's like a carpet burn and it will feel much better soon, but right now I know it stings.

    Steph, been there done that girlie! I have found, as others have suggested, that the snuggy spandex pants work wonders for thunder thighs [​IMG] Just make sure that the inseam comes up close... you know... not real low so that it rubs too. So, skin fitting, but not uncomfortable. Now you go tackle that silly lady in the TV screen and show her what you can REALLY do now that you arent itching every 2 seconds! [​IMG]

    actually you can use desitin or a diaper rash ointment. Powder will keep it dry also with the ointment.

    There are also a number of products out there to help prevent chaffing. Boby Glide and aquaphor are two of them. They are expensive, but last forever. My hubby is a big runner, and long races can do some nasty things without help. Aquaphor on you feet before socks can also prevent blisters.
