What Is Chafing?
Chafing is a type of condition that takes place when the skin is rubbed against a certain fabric for a long period of time causing uncontrollable irritation on the skin. It is much more prominent if an individual wears fabrics made of synthetic as they trap moisture reducing airflow to areas that are vulnerable. It is most noticeable on the armpits, nipples, inner thigh and around the groin region. This in turn can make you cut short your activity due to irritation and pain that comes afterwards. It mostly occurs to people who are overweight since their thighs tend to rub together as they walk or even while exercising.
