Chafing is a common problem for athletes, especially runners and cyclists. However, it can also affect anyone with skin that rubs together in an area where friction is high.
You might experience chafing if you’re wearing tight clothing or pants that are too narrow at the waistline. A lot of people get chafed thighs when they run or bike because they’re exposed to sweat and friction from their shorts rubbing against their skin. And although it’s not as common, women can also get chafed genital areas during sports activities like cycling or running—especially since many athletic-wear brands don’t offer appropriate bottoms for women’s bodies (size).
Wear lightweight, breathable fabrics.
The clothing you wear can also help prevent chafing. Smooth, lightweight fabrics that are breathable are best for the groin area. Cotton and silk are great choices for this area, but you should also avoid synthetic fabrics such as nylon. Again, consider the length of your clothing: avoid anything that may be too long or loose around your hips (as well as any other areas prone to friction). Finally, look at how tight or loose it is—the less restrictive it feels on your skin, the better!

Check out diaper rash creams.
Diaper rash creams are designed to treat dry skin, so they’re safe to use and easy to apply. They can also be effective on chafing in the groin area, especially if your skin is extremely sensitive. Unfortunately, these creams can be expensive—but if you find one that works for you and doesn’t break the bank (such as Desitin), it might be worth the investment!
Use a face cream on your thighs.
If you’re prone to chafing, applying a thick layer of face cream on your thighs is an easy way to get rid of the irritation. Apply the cream near where you anticipate rubbing against clothing or other objects that may cause friction. Leave it on for at least 10 minutes, and wash it off with warm water. Repeat this process daily until your chafing has gone away!
Women who have spent years thinking they need to wear shorts or tights during exercise because their thighs rub together should try using a face cream.
Apply an anti-chafing balm or cream to dry areas of the skin.
To prevent chafing in the groin area, apply an anti-chafing balm or cream to dry areas of skin.
- First, choose a non-greasy product. (Chafing is caused by friction between two surfaces, which increases when there is oil present.) If you are using a product that has been recommended by your doctor and does not come in an aerosol form, be sure to rub it into your skin for at least three minutes before putting on tight clothing or synthetic clothing—both of which can create friction in this area. When applying the balm or cream:
- Start with clean hands and arms after applying sunscreen or insect repellent.
- Apply to dry areas only—and don’t forget about those areas that are prone to chafing! It’s best if you can avoid wearing woolen clothing during hot weather because it traps heat and moisture against the body in moist areas like the groin region; instead go for cotton fabrics such as jeans rather than polyester blends like sweatpants made from recycled materials such as plastic bottles (which also trap heat).

If you have chafing in the groin area, there are some things you can do to prevent it. You should wear lightweight, breathable fabrics that don’t rub against your skin. For example, cotton underwear and sports bras are good choices for women who experience chafing in this area. Avoid homemade remedies containing alcohol, herbs and essential oils as these can irritate the sensitive skin around the groin area—this includes anything from witch hazel to coconut oil. Instead of trying homemade solutions, try petroleum jelly on your thighs or butt cheeks if they’re prone to getting irritated while wearing tight clothes or going long periods of time without a shower (or both).
One thing that may help is using diaper rash creams such as Desitin or Triple Paste on your thighs before putting on pants (especially jeans) during hot weather seasons like summertime when temperatures rise above 90 degrees Fahrenheit outside where we live at least twice per week; just remember not to put too much because these types of creams tend to be very thick! They also contain zinc oxide which has been shown effective against preventing infection
