Chafing
Ok lets throw this one out there, whats everyone's preferred brand or should i say which has been their most successful.
I currently use "moo cream" which applied generously works until you run in the rain, it seems to wear quicker and i find i'm reapplying mid race/run

Anyone recommend any other brands

RE:Chafing
I'm a fan of Body Glide although I don't tend to chafe in winter or on shorter distances.

RE:Chafing
I tried Body Glide because it seems to be the "it" thing to try, but it isn't more effective than what I have used for years and what staved off diaper rash on my 2 baby's butts.. Balmex Multi-Purpose Healing Ointment 3.5 Ounce

Not only is it fantastic for preventative, but for healing. If you happen to get a bit of chaffing despite "balming up", you can apply a bit of cream after shower and before bed and you will notice the healing powers by morning!

Available online on Amazon or you can pick up in Toys'R'Us (baby section) or sometimes found at Walmart or Target.

RE:Chafing
Compression shorts tend to ride up and I think that is what causes chaffing for me the most, so been using kinso / rock tape and large blister patches in hot spots which if not applied properly causes its own issues and you don't want to be peeling that stuff off mid race!

I have tried creams and stuff and never found something that lasted the distance - I guess I probably should be reapplying it every X km - how many times should you reapply it?

Currently trying out different solutions as I build up to longer races later this year, but still is one of my biggest problems (that and the perfect shoe that I don't blister in)

I've started using 2toms sportshield roll on, and have to say im pretty impressed with the stuff have used it now for 2 ultra's, 1 that was wet (pissed it down all day) and 1 that was mild and no hot spots, no chafing no issues, i've attached where i brought it from but you can find it on Amazon
