Anti-chaffing cream

Talking to someone yesterday about soreness in the upper thigh and groin area on long walks (where underwear sits in the creases and rubs) and wondered if anyone uses anti-chaffing cream and what products you'd recommend?
 
I got the chub rub back in the summer at Eurodisney. On my feet 12 hours a day in mid 30s Celsius heat, sweating like a fat man at a buffet, my vegetables were rubbed red raw. Mrs D had some stuff that was nothing short of miraculous. Soon as she gets in I'll find out what its called.

I'm assuming you're a guy? Apologies if I have got that wrong.

I'm not sure that slapping cream on your tender intersections (!) is the best way to solve this problem. Comfy pants may well be the answer.

I find Boxers are better than Briefs and high wicking Boxers are best of all.

Grab a pair of these, they are very soft and silky with no seams in critical areas - v.comfy!:

They are a bit lairy in design but whose going to see!

They also do them for ladies too.

Vaseline or Chapstick (wipe before using on lips after!) and Sudocrem for healing but never had a problem.
You can also try turning the offending underwear inside out as the stitching/edging could be the culprit, however, this is an interesting thread lets see where it goes!

Thanks for the product recommendations, and some interesting ideas about clothing. I know in cycling sometimes you don't wear underwear under your gear? Is that right? Would that apply to walking too or is that cycling specific?

I'll ask about what sort of trousers they were wearing - are walking trousers fitted to be a bit baggier around the groin area then? To stop them rubbing?

Aqueous cream mixed with e45 cream a few drops of lavender oil and a few drops of tea tree oil. Witch Hazel as well if you have it. Makes a great and cheap alternative to proprietry chaffing/ chamois creams.
 
Yep, when I'm cycling I don't wear knickers under my skirt.
