Thigh Chafing

I have a pair of 1.5 inch inseam shorts and when I run they chafe my crotch area what should I do without changing the length of the shorts?


Answer by Dominique:


Hi there,
Thanks for your question about thigh chafing.






You mention that these shorts cause the chafing, but that you can't change the length of the shorts. Not sure if this is a uniform thing or something, but one of the first things I would do is look at different running shorts.

I have got a few pages about them, check out Running Shorts for Men and Running Shorts for Women.

If the shorts need to stay the same, I would look into some anti-chafing products. A product many people have success with is BodyGlide.
This provides a layer of protection on your thighs.

It is also a pretty good remedy against nipple chafing. Find a link to a good supplier of Bodyglide on that nipple chafing page.

I hope this helps.
Kind regards,
Dominique
