Helps with the fat rash
on June 27, 2014
I have a few autoimmune diseases, and occasionally have to go on steroids. Once on steroids, I blow up like a balloon. Naturally on the skinnier side my whole life, I was horrified to learn that in summer, when it gets hot, my thighs would rub together, and I'd get this horrific chafing rashy awfulness, which I refer to as my fat-rash. I'm not a runner, if I'm running, there's a spider somewhere. If someone ran after me with a chainsaw, I'd honestly only try to get away for about 1/4 mile before giving up and letting them just prune me to death. But needs must, and one can only wear lightweight slacks or shorts for so many occasions, and if I'm going to wear a dress, or skirt, or bathing suit, something had to be done, because no matter what the cause, or how you spin it, a creeping rash on ones inner thighs, just is NOT sexy. Nor is scratching your inner thighs, or feeling you need to explain you're scratching your thighs, not your lady parts. Sigh.
Enter "Glide"- I got both this one and the one for women, and I really can't tell the difference. It goes on like deodorant, and sometimes it seems to work great, and other times, not so great. I can't work out what the difference is as to why it sometimes does a great job, and other times allows the dreaded fat-rash to creep back, but it's certainly better than nothing. Moreover, if it's 90* outside, you can be damned sure I'm not stuffing my swollen, steroid riddled body into some $50 spanx. Because I tried that once, and pulled a muscle in my neck, wasting $50 on an elastic full body corset, and requiring muscle relaxants. I couldn't turn my head to the right for about 3 weeks. So, if you've got wobbly bits that rub together causing an uncomfortable rash, even if you're just walking at a sedate pace, and not even considering running, then it's worth giving this a try.
