    What can I do….?

    give less vivid detail next time?

    Assos or Sudocrem would be my advice, however.

    Chamois cream/Sudocreme.

    Stick a small towel down the back of your shorts tomorrow to reduce the amount of sweat running off your back.

    Yup – Sudocrem probably best, since you’ve already done some “damage”

    Sudocrem is your friend

    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.

    Or that stuff for nappy rash, from Boots Β£2.00 a tub. I use it on occasion when I’ve been roadie’ing and sweating a lot.

    Don’t take it lying down though πŸ˜†

    You could get a friend to rub it in I suppose.. It’d have to be an extra special friend of course πŸ˜†

    Orrible is that, I fend off the old bettyswollox with a good white vinegar splash, before a shower.

    I live in a hot place and do a sweaty job, it’s cheap, it works.

    I would be sticking with the sudocrem for the rawness though.

    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.

    Thanks for the replies…
    Smeared on a lot of moisturiser last night which helped sooth things a little.

    What does white vinegar do?

    And most importantly what is sudocream called in German?
    Of to buy some baby wipes now….

    Wasn’t that a hank williams song?

    I once talced my crack after a long walk in similar temps. It made it worse as it just drew out all the lovely lubricating moisture!

    A couple of chefs I used to know always reckoned stuffing a tampax down your crack worked wonders in hot sweaty environments.

    I think that says more about them though.

    Sudocrem is called sudocrem in Germany.

    Chef’s arse. We used to mix chilli’s in with the sudocrem in the kitchen. Nothing worse than expecting instant soothing release only to receive the worst pain imaginable πŸ˜€

    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.

    Also says more about my friends than giving you any useful advice.

    sudocreme is zinc oxide cream, can you pull your cheeks apart for an airing at lunch break?

    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.

    Vinegar = no bacteria

    I get that from time to time and know how crippling it can be.

    First thing I did was ditch the talc; hydrocortisone cream helps but Canestan is far better as it treats the bacterial/fungal infection.

    The only answer is a Vaseline. It’s not nice when it happens but every time I feel a bit of soreness down there a little bit of vas not only allows the cheeks free movement but also protects the skin and allows it to heal.

    Worked every time for me.

    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.
