How to Stop Inner Thigh Chafing
Top 4 Tips
1. Useful Gels and Creams
2. Wear Compression shorts
If you don’t like creams there are some powders that work really well. Plain old talcum powder or baby powder is a common and easily accessible solution. For a more specialized solution, there are things such as ‘Anti Monkey Butt Powder’ which has a male and female variant, ‘Silky Underwear’ by lush and Cornstarch.
Baby powder and cornstarch have worked great for me in the past, but they can be quite messy especially if you’re wearing black you can get powder marks on your clothes which are a bit of trouble.
4. Taking care of yourself Post-Run
It’s not the end of the world if you don’t use any of these solutions for inner thigh chafing. If your thighs have already chafed then there is something you can do. Have a wash and clean the area as soon as possible, pat the area dry don’t rub the area. Now moisturize the skin by applying some coconut oil or shea butter to the area. If the skin is raw and very irritated then forget moisturizing and after patting the area dry apple some nappy rash cream that contains zinc oxide, Sudocream works well. Zinc is a well-known antibacterial which will soothe the area and speed up healing. Once the area is healed sufficiently then you can think about moisturizing the area.
