chaffing help

I made the stupid mistake of wearing my thin english breaches in my roughed out western saddle and now have chaffing all over my inner thighs. Does anyone know any tricks to help this heal faster? All I can think of is lotion.

Try some anti monkey butt powder. Should help sooth the area.

Jock itch creams too, find it in foot section of pharmacy, as is also used for athlete's foot.

Horses make me a better person.

There is a cream, I think it is made by Monastat, no not THAT cream, but it's made to keep you from chafeing and works great. It's in a purple and blue tube. I know the Wal Mart here carries it.

Is it rubbed raw?
I'd put some neosporin on there, so your legs don't end up looking like mine -- discolored patches (scars) on both legs from riding around in shorts as a kid. I don't know why or how I did it, but I guess the pain wasn't bad enough to keep me off my pony, regardless of my attire.

Hope they heal up quickly!
