Human bodies are designed to sweat to control body temperature. Even though it’s totally natural, sometimes it can feel out of control and uncomfortable. For 3% of people who experience excessive sweating (like when you’re sitting calmly at your desk in a temperature-controlled environment, but still sweating), the sweating itself can be uncomfortable, but for most people it’s actually the side effects of sweating that cause discomfort. Chafing, for example, is a common skin problem caused by the combination of friction and moisture from sweating, and even irritating fabric and clothing.View products

If you experience chafing, try to stop anything that’s causing it, like change into clothes that are more comfortable and don’t rub your skin in an irritating way. Applying cream or topical steroids to the area can also help. Dermal Therapy’s Chafing & Sweat Rash Prevention Cream uses a next generation formula to prevent chafing and sweat rash, offering long-lasting sweat protection and lubrication to protect the skin.
Chafing is a pretty common skin problem caused by moisture from sweat, combined with friction, and often irritating fabrics or clothing. It’s the prolonged rubbing on the skin that causes the chafing, and can make the skin sting, burn, or become a rash.
Chafing can look like a mild, red rash, and in more severe cases you might see swelling, bleeding or crusting, or blister-like lesions. We sweat most under the arms, in stomach folds, beneath the breasts and buttocks, between the legs and under the feet, so you’re more likely to have chafing in those areas where body parts rub together.
Chafing is caused by repeated rubbing or friction of body parts, so there are several factors that can cause chafing, like sweating during exercise, nappy rash and ill-fitting clothes (especially during humid weather).
Chafing can cause rash, which can sometimes appear as small bumps on the skin
Chafing can last for as long as the friction/rubbing/sweat combination is there. The good news is, avoiding the causes that lead to chafing, and with proper treatment like using Dermal Therapy’s Chafing & Sweat Rash Prevention Cream, chafing symptoms can disappear within 2-7 days.
