    The few times that this has happened to me, I applied some of the kids' diaper rash ointment to the affected area and it defininely helped.

    Desitin like you put on babies is great also. It also heals the skin. I always get the creamy kind in a tube. Pretty cheap compared to glide. I've also used stick deodorant in a pinch.

    One more thing. Until the chafing heals, wearing boy short panties or even lycra gym shorts can help. I have these things called "tap pants" which are like loose legged nylon panties with 2" legs. I wear them if I am going hiking on a hot day to prevent chafing.

    I would second this, lyrca (& similar fabrics like modal) are extremely soft vs. plain cotton are less prone to friction burns. Lyrca & modal are very lightweight but have little wicking capacity vs. cotton (if you sweat a bunch, you will feel drenched/saturated with sweat wearing modal/lyrca). Acrylic socks are another good fabric for preventing chaffing

    I would think your clothing choices would affect this to some degree as well. Are you wearing leggings or more loosely fitting pants? What type of fabric? I think compression leggings would hold everything in and reduce or eliminate skin-skin contact.

    Thank you all for your responses!

    I wear compression leggings(I can't wesr pants that are too loose when I work out), and a loose t-shirt.

    I managed to just use a little vaseline and my chafing has gone down greatly! I'm starting to think it was mostly caused by TOM accessories(a pad) but I'm not 100% sure. I will have to see if it happens again next month, and if so, I will have to just deal with it 🤷‍♀️

    I used to run 7 days a week and got chafing on my inner thighs. Good old vasoline applied sparingly worked well.
