Second that. I get what I refer to as swamp a$$ and when it gets real bad this is the only thing that gets rid of it. If it isn't too bad you can use jock itch or athletes foot spray as a treatment or preventative.

Just get a dress, or maybe a kilt?

Buy some loose logger jeans and switch from undewear to jersey lounge shorts underneath them.

5 year old thread, but valuable info here.
You don't need to be heavy to get "The John Wayne". Frame a house in 100 degree heat with wet shorts and a wet tool belt for 8-10 hours a day. It can happen to anyone.

I use Desitin ointment when I know conditions will be ripe for the rub.

Apparently heat rash can be fatal, because the O.P. never came back. Or maybe he had a mortal allergy to baby powder. One of life's mysteries.

In the summer (the 10 months between February and December) I wear lightweight shorts, like running shorts with under amour boxers, it's the bunched up cargo shorts that give me the monkey butt. A good dose of gold bond powder after the shower clears it up by the time you wake up.

You can get it at running stores, sports stores, etc. My wife uses it because she's a marathon runner.

It really should.

It's the absolute best for this sort of thing. It's the only thing that makes moving in summer time possible for me. I don't do well in the heat.

If you've got any irritation around your underwear wasteband, or on your shins (under the tops of your socks), that's a sign you're likely allergic to the laundry detergent or fabric softener. If so, stick with the fragrance-free ones and especially avoid all softeners (esp. the ones for the dryer). First hand knowledge, here.

I once thought of starting a new remodeling business called "Assless chaps construction". It would kinda be like a naked maid service, but after thinking it over, the clientail would most certainly be limited and quite possibly, not to my liking.
Now, I tell you this because it's the first time I've ever heard of a legitimate reason to actually wear them. Just saying.
