I'm one hurtin' pup! During my swim I chafed but good. The back of my neck and my arms (short sleeve tri suit) are raw! I felt my neck towards the end of my swim, but just finished out the swim anyway.<br><br>
My hair brushing against my neck HURTS! My sleeves touching my arms HURTS!<br><br>
What's the best way to treat this? I have to work tomorrow and I know my uniform shirt is going to rub.

Bodyglide.......bodyglide..........today I ran and didn't put body glide under where my running bra hits (below)......at mile 4 of my 7 miler it was SO sore.....now I have a huge chafing scab mark.....I know better!!<br><br>
Bodyglide is the answer if your skin is sensitive........put it anywhere you MAY possibly have an issue.

On the raw spots, though, I find better luck with hydrocortisone ointment.....<br>
or, bacitracin (sp?). Something like that.<br><br>
If need be, cover them with something till they aren't quite so ouchie.<br>
Ultimately, time will be the thing that will take care of them.

aquaphore is the best for chafed areas unlike hysrocotisone and bacitracin you aren't giving yourslef a dose of meidicne with it. It (and the bacitracin) will be a bit greasy. If its very raw you can cover it with tape but it wont' heal faster.

Generic Neosporin. Before swimming Body Glide or high necked swim skin. If chaffed, the triple antibiotic ointment from Wal Mart.

Bodyglide for prevention...Aquaphor after the fact. The Aquaphor healed my "hangman's noose" marks after Alcatraz because I was a n00b and forgot to BG my neck.

If Bodyglide doesn't work well enough (it hasn't been for me lately with everything fitting weird cuz body size changing -- still lots of chafing/bleeding)<br><br>
In the first aid aisle next to the bandaids, there's this clear skin cover. It sticks on like a bandaid, is clear and waterproof... can last 7 days. It's been working for me when nothing else has.<br>
Plus, you can keep it on under your regular clothes too and don't have to keep reapplying. It will just stay there.<br><br><br>
In the meantime, to stop the pain from the chafing-- talcum powder has always worked best for me.
