severe chapping, help!

Well today I made the unfortunate mistake of wearing thinner underwear and working on trotting in my lessons today. Tge underwear bunched up and I ended up with some really painful raw areas by my ahem "lady region". Dear mother of God this is one of the worst pains I have EVER felt. I have no idea what to do, I can't even use the bathroom or shower because of the pain. Im to embarassed to tell my mom. Ugh I just want this pain gone, I can hardly walk. Please, advice is needed.

a cool bath might help. Really, just time. I bet one day will make a world of difference. Start distracting yourself so you don't think about the pain.

Basically don't wear fitting/tight underwear for awhile. If you have some boxers or whatever to chill in while it heals.. go for it.


As for prevention.. pad it up down there!

Diaper rash ointment!

My friend and me went riding bareback one day- real boney backed ol broodmares-- we ended up with exactly what you described and the ointment was a life saver!
