Vaseline can stain your clothes. I found out the hard way when I applied a little vaseline before heading off to work and came home with a greasy spot on my butt.

I have today done a 24 mile walk, for the first time ever i suffered chaffing, had no vaseline to hand to apply ! My inside legs are red raw. Sat here now going commando. Walking on Dartmoor on Sunday, I think I will be going commando again, that is if I can walk by then ! Ouch

I told you before. Bite the bullet and hold a flannel loaded with surgical spirit onto the raw parts. You will feel like dying for the first couple of times, but in the end your skin will harden off. The other way is to lose weight!!!

Even when I was peak of physical fitness and primed for being an RAF officer, I still chaffed and had no weight to lose bar muscle mass.

I just have very weak skin for allergies, tearing and chaffing.

I bought some super skivvies and did a 14 mile walk in 30 degree heat the other day. I still chaffed pretty badly, but it is definately more manageable than before.

I'm going to try the surgical spirit method I think. Luckily, a day of vaseline and commando did the trick, I walked today with no chaffing. May give Sudocream a go too.
