Chafing occurs when your skin experiences friction from rubbing against clothing or another body part. It can be painful and irritating but won’t necessarily hinder you from working out. You can prevent chafing by wearing clothes with soft material and seams. You can also use petroleum jelly or talcum powder before your workout to lubricate areas prone to chafing. If you need to lubricate areas near clothing, you can use products that are formulated to be washable and non-staining.
