I am 5'4. I am 118 lbs. I'm a size 3. I'm African-American with a pretty sizable ass but I'm really small framed. My thighs have touched my whole life, since I started filling out as a woman. However, this past month, my thighs have been chafing like the dickens and I don't know why or how to stop it.
The area is like, consistently ashy and the skin there has completely changed in texture (always rough) and has darkened. I'm insecure about wearing jeans or shorter skirts or shorts because I know my thighs will rub together and make it worse. I've tried vaseline to make it less obvious but I dont always want gross vaseline on my legs when I go to work or out to the club or something. I don't know what to do.
I think it's because I've gained maybe ONE POUND OR TWO in the last 6 months. But that can't be the reason can it? You dont' change that dramatically over a pound.
Anyway, I need serious help. There's a guy I'm into and it hasn't gone very far, but in case it does, I don't want this to be the thing he sees first. Any suggestions to prevent further chafing, sooth my thighs, or to reserve the damage to my thighs appearance would be MOST appreciated. thanks.
