I wonder has anyone had a similiar problem to me.
After a long run the inside cheeks of my butt bleed. I presume it is friction and have tried different shorts etc. Any ideas for a solution?
That's why you never shake hands with someone at the start of a marathon.
I've had similar when it's been very hot and sweaty - shorts won't cure the chafing between the cheeks but a liberal dose of vaseline will.
bloody uncomfy eh?
I feel your pain. This is why I gave up on lycra shorts. I stick to "ordinary" shorts, where the chafing issue is at the top of the legs rather than in the butt crack. Still have to apply vaseline or bodyglide but the consequences of forgetting are less drastic.
if you want something that is a bit different... try out this stuff. Stops chaffage brilliantly. I just like the quirky name too - appeals to my stupid sense of humour!
Another vote for Bodyglide for prevention, and for Sudocreme on the sore bits.
I used to think that vaseline was invented by the Romans. Turns out it was ancient Greece.
