Chafing occurs when the skin rubs against another part of the body or in clothing, shoes or parts of equipment. It can occur in various sports activities, such as long-distance running, cycling or cardio training. The reasons that lead to this unpleasant feeling are various, including being overweight, uncomfortable or inappropriate clothes and shoes. Factors that increase the risk of chafing are intense sweating in warm and humid weather. The skin becomes red, inflamed and sore. The most vulnerable parts of the body are the armpits, inner thighs, neck, nipples and groin. Chafing can appear as a slight discomfort, but if ignored, it can intensify and even interfere with your performance. That is why prevention is extremely important.
