    Chafing (Doctor says big thighs)

    I am 5'11 3/4" @ 205lbs. My quads are 26". I am by no means fat at all. I do have some giant ass legs. The doctor says it's because my thighs are to big. If I don't shower 2-3 times a day depending what I am doing I chaff so bad the next day it hurts really bad. I don't know what to do, I have tried baby powder and all kinds of shit.

    Why does showering make it better? I imagine it would make it worse. I'd go with what the above poster said, or maybe wear spandex shorts for underwear. I have the same problem and tighter fitting pants actually help because there is less fabric to skin friction.

    I use Gold Bond medicated powder. Keeps the inner thighs dry and reduces chaffing.

    I think the key is avoiding skin-to-skin contact, especially when you are working out.

    Had the same issue when I was running competitively in high school. The short shorts that were all so sexy allowed my inner thighs to rub. I was a distant runner than leg pressed over 900lbs. I was built for middle distance though. Anyhow, baby powder for the win. I also would buy a separate deodorant for my below nuts area and it kept the chaffing to an extreme minimal.

    vasoline is cheaper and works great. I also have big thighs and have this problem occasionally. Spandex shorts for drawers is also a good choice.

    Who do you think i got the tip from. Seriously, vasoline helps prevent chafing. Looking extremely gay while greased up is just an added bonus

    Yeah, definitely. I've had the same problem before and this is the key.

    I highly recommend that you wear some type of boxer brief that fits tight around the thighs. They will do the rubbing so your thighs aren't skin to skin causing the irritation. I have found Haynes to have the best fit and they seem to last the longest.

    Boxer briefs solved the problem for me.

    Tried boxers, tight boxer briefs, baby powder, vaseline. I thought about deodorant but have not tried it yet. Now I will chaff if it just gets sweaty from walking around. If I walk like I shit myself all day and separate them it will be fine.

    I've got a big ass and I sweat a lot. I get a rash and itching. Deep itching in my ass caused by moisture and yeast/fungus. I'd like pants that would separate my cheeks. I know his is 2010 but I really know the future of fashion is butt cheek pants. Can someone PLEASE make your millions on this right away. I don't want the money for the idea just the pants.

    let your clothes go an extra rinse cycle on the washer and use tide with downy so the last rinse is just water. try gold bond powder and white cotton boxer briefs. also switch to a baby soap for a month.
