Chafing on my inner thighs/balls

i run/walk a combo of at least 4 miles every day now, sometimes 8-10 (mostly walking). I wear briefs style underwear and have tried thin and thick pants, but both still cause my thighs and balls to rub. I wouldn't post about this if it didn't cause me discomfort and i know other people have had to of gone through this. All joking aside, what do you suggest?

Re: Chafing on my inner thighs/balls

Petroleum jelly (Vaseline), a good layer of it on your balls and inner thighs - that'll help for sure. Yeah, I know - sounds gay, but it works

Re: Chafing on my inner thighs/balls

I also get this. I even get it on my lats during the week from wearing tank tops while I lift. I can't just schmeer Vasaline on my sides... that would look slightly odd. What do you suggest for me?

Re: Chafing on my inner thighs/balls



A good Set of Boxer Briefs will help to stop it from happening when you work out. try out the Spandex kind. Baby powder or even Corn Starch helps with the pain once you have it (I use to be a mover, walking ALL day on hot days, and having to work the next day was no picnic!!)

Other than this, like SVS said Some Vaseline will help as well

Re: Chafing on my inner thighs/balls

Vaseline is very uncomfortable I would think. I used to get this, then I switched to boxers all the time, as far as the guy with the lats problem- Don't wear a tank top...

Re: Chafing on my inner thighs/balls

Buy a pair of compression shorts. Under Armour makes some, so does Nike. That will help too. Just make sure you wear some shorts OVER the compression shorts and not only the compression shorts

haahaHAHAHAHAH!!!!


The under armor shorts should help... I've never had this problem myself, but a guy I know uses "Gold Bond" and swears by it. It's kinda like baby powder I think. Made specifically for chafing.

Not that I didn't enjoy reading this But my boyfriend walks a million and one miles a day at work, in long pants, in heat, and gets it. He uses gold bond, and swears by it.

Re: Chafing on my inner thighs/balls

As far as the chafing in your crotch, some compression shorts or shorts with a built in liner like running short style will help with the ball chafing. The thighs will still rub, so vaseline, or better yet, bodyglide to stop the friction. I used to use vaseline, but now I use bodyglide for my long runs. It comes in a stick and goes on like deoderant. www.bodyglide.com Your local running store should have it.

Re: Chafing on my inner thighs/balls

I use vaseline like others have said on long runs.

I find that tracksters rub my bollocks something chronic after long periods - a decent fitting pair of lined football (soccer) shorts or running shorts with nothing under them seem to be the best bet for not rubbing - but if Im out for more than 20 miles I will still use a bit of vaseline.

vaseline can be good at stoping your nipples rubbing against your tshirt to on long runs to.

apparantly lycra cycling shorts dont rub at all, but they look gayer than gay and there is no way I would wear a pair of those things whilst running.

It can be very embarrassing buying big jars of vaseline though it has to be said.
