Hi, I am overwieght and when I workout, running outside, or working, I get many "raw rash" type things in between my legs, when they rub together. I recently found out that this is called "chafing". But, my legs have been rubbed so raw, they are no longer red, but a purplish-red color.
My question is has anyone ever got it before? How do you deal with this. What can I get to relieve and treat the pain. Besides of course losing weight which is what I am in the process of doing now.
This is really starting to hurt my fitness rutine though.
I had chaffing in high school sports quite often. I dealt with it by wearing compression shorts, using goldbond or other medicated powders to relieve the burn and reduce the rubbing before and after workouts.
