Remedies for Chafing

My husband works out in the sun all day. He gets really bad chafing so that he can't walk that good. He used cornstarch and Monkey Butt powder and it works for a little bit then it comes back really bad. I'm trying to find out what I can use.

Try anti-perspirant. It works.

Depending on where his chafed areas are located, a change in the style of underwear he wears to work could help. My husband fought this for years, using powder ever day and still suffering from chafing. But one year I bought him a different style of underwear and it helped, and then I sought out more variations of that style and now he rarely chafes. Find underwear that are labeled as "boxer briefs" and which sort of hug the legs. Only certain brands work best for my husband... "Starter" brand is one that does. These seem to cover and cling in all the areas that were prone to chafing. Might be worth a try?

I went through this for years with my husband while he played semi-pro ball. Turns out it was really a yeast infection and you have to treat it like one.

Plus he is probably giving it to you and you need to handle that also. My doctor said we just kept passing it back & forth. The guys call it "jock-itch"...also hot water &/or bleach his underwear.

Wash very good, dry. Use vasilone and pat cornstarch on before bed and try that. It worked for my husband for years, and used it on my babies too. Worked great!

If it really is a yeast infection, and I get them a lot too, this helps. Go to the dollar store and get a tube of athlete's foot cream. Yes, you read right.

After washing good, apply and it takes about a day to clear up. The other remedy is good too, about making sure the skin doesn't touch.

Try Zeasorb powder. It is more expensive than regular powder, but it is very drying and controls bacteria and fungus that can cause problems on hot sweating skin.

I have used it over the years and it is a life saver. It can be hard to find but I have seen it at Wal Mart and on the internet. It works on athletes foot also.

My husband had this problem when he was deployed overseas. He would take a tube of diaper rash cream and slather it on. He said it was a real lifesaver. Good luck to your husband!

Go to you're local pharmacy or you may have to call around cause some of them do not carry it. It's called resinol it's in a small jar it does not take much at all I live in Kentucky depending on where you live. Here I pay $10 a jar it is great for diaper rash after the second diaper change it will be cleared up.
