Thank you so much for this tip. I just bottle a big bottle of it and a smaller bottle with a foam pump. For the first time in my life, I got a huge infection in my armpits. They never tested it, but it might have been staph, because the second course of antibiotic best for staph helped heal it about 90%. I'm hoping this clears up the last bit and gives me the overall help you've shared.

Because... I can. I want to. I will... I *have.* End of story.

Just wanted to say thank you, Southern Star! I'll look into picking this up. Now that we're in full blown summer, I think it would help. I think it might help my fiance, too. Most antiperspirants will cause his skin to break out, so this may be a better alternative for him. Great idea!

Thanks for sharing!

I would also mention Body Glide, which even skinny people use on places that chafe, like for runners and such. It also helps alleviate some of the symptoms you mentioned.

I used to get chaffing and end up with painful red skin under my belly, breasts, and leg folds. I tried powers and other remedies with mediocre results. Then I found a product called Hibiclens. Its a antimicrobial skin cleaner. Often used before surgeries to clean skin and kill bacteria. The first time I used it I was in the middle of a yeast infection in my skin folds from taking antibiotics. I could not get it under control for a few weeks. I started using Hibiclens and was 90% better in a few days and it was gone and healed within a week.

I use it 3-4 times a week under my belly fold, under breasts, and in the creases of where my legs meet my body. I wash with regular soap rinse then apply Hibiclens and let it sit a few minutes and rinse. I also put it under my armpits daily and it eliminates the odor to the point I don't have to wear deodorant. I guess it kills the odor causing bacteria. I have been using it around 6 months and haven't had one skin issue. Which before I was getting chaffing or some type of irritation at least monthly.

Its a thin type liquid so I put it in a foaming soap dispenser. You can find it at Walmart, pharmacies, or Amazon. Some people have a reaction to it so I recommend testing it someplace else first. I have had no issues at all and feel so much cleaner. I don't get that musky smell under my belly or other places anymore. I wanted to tell everyone incase you have some of these issues. Its changed my life. I no longer worry about crazy skin problems in my skin folds anymore.
