Chub Rub

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have a random question to ask.  I am plus sized (size 16) and when I wear skirts I use a body glide for a small part of my inner thighs. If I didn't, I would get a painful rash (it's also very hot in the summer here).

 

I don't feel comfortable using the body glide when pregnant but would love to wear my skirts this summer.  Any suggestions?  Powder does not work or regular lotion.  I am willing to do bike shorts but I would want them under my stomach so I'm not sure that's realistic. 

 

TIA!

coconut oil? Why are you not wanting to use your body glide? is it chemical laden?

You know, it doesn't seem to. The active ingredient is Allantoin.  The first 3 inactive ingredients are:  aloe barbadensis leaf juice, caprylic/capric triglyceride, and cetearyl alcohol.

 

And I did a Google search and found it mentioned for pregnancy use (bra chafing, inner thighs, etc) frequently, including a 2 year old post on Mothering.

 

So maybe I am just being overly cautious.  It would be simple for me to use.

Yes, I think I will now that I've read so many people use it during pregnancy.
