Use a powder scented deodorant the pat down with an aloe baby powder. I have had no problems for almost a most now. It works by keeping these ares dry.

My daughter-in-law lost 250 pounds. Though she exercised to help with the excess skin, she still has alot on her belly. I will tell her about this cream, cloth strips. Let me know if you use them or find anything else to help. Thanks. Liquorish

I'm sorry about how this was written but my cp was acting up. What I meant to write was " Use a powder scented deodorant in these areas then pat down with aloe baby powder. I have had no problems for almost a month now. It works by keeping these areas dry." Once again sorry for how it came out. "cp means computer.

Hello Cheryl. I started using Lanacane Anti-Chafing Gel. I get it at Wal Mart. Pharmacy department with antibiotic ointments. It is expensive, but a little goes a long way. I only have to use it once, when I get dressed. It seems to help soak up the sweat, and keeps my bra from rubbing me raw. Hope this helps. Liquorish

I had a client who had something like this when I was a Certified Nurse Aide in home health, The patient was grossly overweight and would sweat profusely in the summertime especially. I believe the condition was called "Intertrigo" ~ http://www.skinsight.com/adult/intertrigo.htm (caution, the pictures of this condition may be a bit disturbing)

There are other reasons for such skin problems which may be found at ~

I have actually used deodorant in the summer time here to help. Make sure your skin is not sensitive to it, but it keeps the rash at bay
