I second the cotton balls and rubbing alcohol solution for chaffing. I don't
remember who originally told me about that, but it works like a charm.

Now it's gonna hurt like hell! That's a fact. But not nearly as bad as
chaffing hurts. This pain only last for a few seconds. Chaffing hurts all

So, at the end of the night before you go to bed apply rubbing alcohol to
the affected area... Then have a nice short cry... Then wear something loose
and breathable to sleep. Don't wear the tight underwear that you've been
hiking in all day. I liked to sleep in my silk long johns.

By morning the area will no longer be all red and swollen and sticky. It
will be dried out and hardened over. After a few weeks the insides of thighs
and ass cheeks will become like leather.

Then the only thing you have to worry about from your legs rubbing together
is inadvertently sparking a brushfire in your pants.
