The problem of sweat rash and chafing is caused by a number of factors. Usually it is due to the surfaces becoming moist. This could be due to hot climatic conditions, rigorous physical activity or the type of clothing worn. Moist skin becomes tacky, meaning the surfaces of the skin do not glide over each other smoothly. As these skin surfaces rub together, they cause friction leading to redness, rash and chafing. This problem mainly happens between the legs, beneath the breasts and between the buttocks. It can also occur on the nipples and beneath the arms.
Chafing affects people in a number of different circumstances. These circumstances include: people who exercise or play sport, people living in hot climates, people who are overweight and people who are bed ridden (bed sores). Chafing is an extremely painful problem and those who suffer from it find it difficult to carry out daily activities.
