Inner thigh causes chafing
With the arrival of summer, the legs are uncovered, wearing dresses, long or short skirts. This clothing, however, col sweat, can lead to an unpleasant sensation: that of thighs touching. This feeling can be extremely painful, forcing us to walking badly. Not only theinner thighs is subject to this unpleasant phenomenon, but also other areas of the body such as: under the breast, underarms, heel and buttocks. Rubbing irritation can be caused byskin friction with fabrics (tight and synthetic clothes, aggressive detergents, thong, bra, sanitary towels, panty liners, etc) or with the skin itself. Rubbing occurs mainly during walks and during intense physical activity. A’excessive sweating and continuous rubbing can make the skin more vulnerable and favor redness, irritation and itching.
The rubbing of the thighs it is often unavoidable and can be very painful. However, it is possible to protect the skin with natural remedies or specific products, able to reduce friction and possible irritation.

Among the effective remedies against rubbing of the thighs is the alum stone, just the one that is usually used for the underarm area, but can be useful for many other problems: avoiding ingrown hairs, relieving the skin after shaving, but also avoiding rubbing of the thighs. The alum stone is able to reduce perspiration: by sweating less, the skin does not stick, thus avoiding many unpleasant rubbing.
The talc absorbs sweat and prevents irritation. It is an inexpensive and skin-friendly remedy, perfect on the thighs or under the breasts. Unfortunately, the duration of these benefits is short, so it requires repeated applications. Another negative point is the possibility of dirtying clothes. For the rest, the talcum powder however, it remains a valid remedy especially for short walks. Effective and economical, the Vaseline guarantees a reduction in friction but, like talcum powder, it does not last long. For this reason the application must be repeated several times.
What to use for thighs that rub together
On the market there are specific products for the solution of this unpleasant problem. There are formulations in cream or spray tonti-rubbing. Their duration is decidedly long, but obviously the cost is higher than a tube of petroleum jelly or a jar of talcum powder; but it still remains an inexpensive product.
Another idea is to wear the stretch cotton shorts which absorb sweat effectively. They are usually made in raw cut and without seams, so as to disappear under the clothes and be as comfortable as possible. You can find them in the underwear shops and haberdasheries of the past.
