How to Prevent Skin Chafing

If skin rubs against anything, skin chafing occurs. It can be very painful but there are things you can do to keep it from happening. Below are some easy suggestions that you can start using today!

For most of my teenage years and into my adulthood, I've had to deal with one type of skin issue or another. I knew I wasn't the only one dealing with these issues, so back in 2020 is when I got really serious about it and decided to help others with my knowledge about skin care.

If skin chafing is an issue for you, you'll find some good suggestions that I know can help and whether you get chafing in the most common areas like the thighs, groin, underarms or even your nipples (not a rare problem if you run) or any other area, the most important thing to remember is you need to lessen the frequency of that rubbing. And, there are very easy ways to do this:

1. Skin must be kept dry. This means that sweating needs to be controlled. Controlling it may be easier than you think if you use talcum powder. See below* for how to do this quickly and easily.

2. Make sure you stay lubricated. Petroleum jelly or other skin oils could be very effective in aiding the friction issue. Runners may find this especially helpful.

3. Wear the right clothes. Nowadays, they have clothing on the market specifically telling you that they are "moisture wicking". Also, wear clothes that fit well. If you have thigh chafing, compression shorts might be an option for you.

Finally, how can you treat an already chafed area? The first thing you want to do is clean the area and dry it well. Apply the lubricant of choice. If the area is painful or is actually bleeding, you may need a medicated ointment. Avoid any activity that would cause further skin chafing because the problem areas could become infected. If that happens, you should see a doctor so that they can give the best treatment.

*Put the talcum powder in a small, thin towel, washrag or handkerchief. Secure the edges together (you can even use a rubberband). Then, just use it as a powder puff on the areas that you tend to sweat.
