my chafing arse….
Hydrocortisone cream; you can probably buy it from the corner shop in that foreign, use that overnight to damp down the inflammation and chafing, then use lots of moisturising cream. Also use some babywipes at intervals during the day to clean off the salt; that’s what causes the chafing as it dries into crystals.
..and to those of you turning your noses up at the detail; one day you might need similar advice, but be too overcome with emotion to ask about it; ‘ave a word.Posted 4 years ago
Been working outside all day today in 30’C heat. (started on the build for the Oktoberfest, if you’re interested) and despite wearing shorts in a bid to stay cool my sweaty arse cheeks have been rubbing themselves against each other. Had a cool shower and even talced my crack, but walking to the pub has been a rather uncomfortable and unpleasant experience.
It’s due to be even hotter tomorrow.
What can I do….?
I really wish this was a wind up. It isn’t.Posted 4 years agosenor jSubscriber
wear leather chaps for work – like a cowboy.

A couple of chefs I used to know always reckoned stuffing a tampax down your crack worked wonders in hot sweaty environments.
A couple of cricketing colleagues reckoned the same, but used panty liners between the cheeks.
Sadly, they then used to peel off the adhesive tape and stick the sweaty liner to your back when you weren’t looking.

Yup, I’ve now got sore zinc cream and baby wipes and an happy to tell you that the chafing has lessened.
Re leather trousers,I was toying with the idea of wearing my Bavarian lederhosen, but it’s far too hot. Instead I’m wearing my traditional German carpenter shorts. Google Zimmerman hose.Posted 4 years agolungeSubscriber
Ah yes, the joy of chefs arse. After many years in catering I found the a 2 pronged approach worked.
1. The preparation. As mentioned, Sudacreme in the evening, a bloody good scrub first thing and more Sudacreme in the day, reapply as needed.
2. Clothing. For me, the only thing that helped was a pair of Lycra shorts (not padded obviously) under your normal shorts and some breathable boxers.
That combo was the only way I could stop it.Posted 4 years ago
