    Hello, let me tell you a few things about myself, I’m 21 years old and I am currently out of shape. I have recently started running and dieting. So far I have lost 10 lbs by doing this. But I have got a problem and I’m hoping I can get some help.

    I have been running for the last few weeks and when I run the inside of thighs rub together causing the skin to rub off and blister. After running for 15 minutes it gets kind of painful. I have been using some skin moisturizer in the area before I run and that kind of helps it for a short time, but then the friction builds up and it blisters again.
    I know that as I burn more calories the fat will burn off and this problem will eventually fix itself as my thighs will get thinner. But in the mean time what can I do to remedy this problem?

    Thanks

    Also, Gold Bond works wonders... I have to use it when it gets really hot when I'm at work cuz I walk around so much.. When a friend recommended it I thought he was joking until I tried it. It actually works.

    Do not use moisturizer, it will just make the chafing worse next time

    if you have a running store there is actually a lube they sell specifically for that. at least that's what my friend, who's a runner, told me

    yes, wear compression shorts underneath your running shorts. make sure not to go cheap, get a ncie pair that extracts sweat to the outside to evaporate. Also, they sell astroglide which is good for yoru problem. If you are wearing compression shorts, you probably don't need astroglide though.

    Heres a thumbs up for taking control of your weight problem:bigthumb:

    buy some Body Glide - looks like a deodorant stick, but its to prevent chafing.

    and please don't type in Time New Roman any more

    dot.

    Compression shorts will work too, but two layers of shorts can get warm in the summer.

    I'm far from over-weight and my inner thighs rub together. :hsd:

    What's your diet like ? I wanted to lose some fat and lost 15 lbs in 2 months but stopped going to the gym (I just did HIIT and cardio) and even though I ate plenty of protein I'm pretty sure that most of the weight loss was muscle. Eat protein and lift, otherwise you're going to regret it.
