    I get chafing from doing long hikes (in the summer, mostly). I use A+D diaper rash ointment... works great! I'm not obese so this is common with lots of people, but was worse when I was overweight.

    My solution to that is to wear leggings under everything! My go-to normal every day look is a casual dress with leggings. If the dress is above the knee it can look really cute with leggings. Then you rock cute shoes or boots and you look pulled together. Plus no chafing, plus they absorb moisture. I love 'em. I have 17 pairs of leggings in a bunch of neutrals - grays, beiges, browns, black. Since going primal in October I've thrown out a bunch and have sent a bunch off to the charity shop near me and have bought new, smaller sizes, but I still have 17 pairs that fit me. Go to Old Navy. 100% cotton leggings for under $20.00. Be comfy. Seriously, even in the summer you can do leggings under dresses. The cotton ones will wick moisture away from anything that chafes.

    I second the Monistat anti-chafing gel, it's great stuff. It goes on like a cream but dries powdery. I lost a lot of weight but still have chafing because of how loose the skin on my thighs is.

    I've always used coconut oil if there is a chance of chafing.

    Buy a pair of spanxs, they will kind of shrink with you. The compression shorts would work well too. Funny how we think we are the only ones who have issues with me thing or the other...

    LOL yeah
    Are spanxs those things that hold in your belly too?
    If so I can't do that, I hate things over my belly, its just too uncomfortable, most of the time my pants are under it, unless I am out, but if my shirt is long enough I still do that.
    I know it will stop eventually, but will try some coconut oil in the mean time, until I get some beeswax

    How about the stuff runners use on their feet?
