    The subject of chafing due to thigh rub came up on another thread and rather than hijack that one I decided to start another.

    I was googling for a better product than the talc and moisturiser I use as I'd heard that athletes use something specific.

    This is what I found - with the offer of a free sample to try it out.

    Lanacane: Get rid of the itch

    Hope this helps someone,

    I only used to get that when I wore a skirt. I guess trousers protect you. I also used to sometimes wear those cycle short type things under a skirt. Now I just don't bother with skirts!

    I did used to use Lanacane though.

    It's not really 'chafing ' but does anyone else get that thing with shorts where they seem to rub higher ad higher on your thighs but the outsides stay where they should be.

    You can also get a cream made by udderly smooth (v.strange name I know) I think its called a chamos ccream or something. We sell in in our chemist. We also have a lanacane anti chaf powder which might help

    I hear Lanacane is good. I've never used it, but a friend of mine (who is incidentally only a size 12!) swears by it in summer she she's wearing a skirt with bare legs.

    I rubbed some into my hand and it is weirdly slippery without being wet or sticky :).

    I also get the irritating shorts-riding-up-inner-thighs thing, grrr!

    a few years ago I heard that the chafing only happens when you sweat so I started using a cream anti perspirant on my thighs where they rubbed if I was wearing a skirt or dress and it really worked. I also use a roll on under my boobs and belly where I can get an itchy rash from sweating and it works wonders!

    Hey lovetosew, I'm going to try that, the logic sounds just right. I've never come across a cream anti persperant, what do you use.

    Still no free lanacane sample here. Did anyone else apply?

    I use the Vaseline Intensive Care Active Fresh Dry Cream. It comes in a funny toadstool shape container, you twist the bottom and the cream squeezes out the top. That is what I use as my usual deodorant anyway and I find it fab, I tend to develop allergies top spray deos but I've been using this for years now. For under boobs/belly I use Powder Fresh Mitchum roll on because it is lighter and quicker to apply.

    Thank you for the tip about lanacane. I only get the rubbing when its hot and I wear a skirt. I always use moisturiser between my thighs, and if I have chaffed, I cool the sore skin with germolene.

    I am finding that losing weight is helping. Since losing two stone my thighs rub together less....

    I was on WW PPs but have now switched to calorie counting.
    There is a cream anti-perspirent called Arrid as well, I have used it and it is good. Boots sell it and it is only a few quid.
