Foot Problems - Corns And Calluses

Recommended Posts

Chafing is friction caused by the rubbing together of body parts. For runners, this occurs underneath the arms, in the groin, on the nipples (women and men), and between the thighs. Sweating only makes it worse. People incorrectly think that chafing only affects people who are overweight. Even the slimmest athletes, runners, and cyclists suffer from it.

There are four ways to prevent chafing, namely keep dry, keep hydrated, use anti chafing cream for runners, and wear the right clothing. This applies to professional, amateur, and recreational runners. To stay hydrated, drink lots of water during the race, before the race, and after the race.

Perspiration contains less salt when the body is well-hydrated. This prevents the formation of salt crystals when the perspiration dries. These crystals on the body can create friction which results in chafing. Your run will be a lot more comfortable if you drink lots of water and apply anti-chafing cream.
