We bought big bottles but somehow they got lost, so I had nothing for ~5 days until I was so desperate I asked around the rest of our camp and took my friend's sister in law's moisturizer for the rest of the trip. I applied that stuff on my ass 3x/night. Do not leave home w/o it. I got so desperate at one point before the moisturizer that I applied duct tape to the inside of my cheeks.
Pro Tip: Stuff with menthol or peppermint or whatever that shit was, STINGS when applied to a highly chaffed area . At least I knew it was working!
My burgin friend that is coming this year is a runner and recommends something with a numbing element to it, or vaseline. I plan to have all of the above + moisturizer. I have bike-short-esq underwear, but that doesnt help my ass, just my thighs a bit.
As a avid-distance runner in my past life, I SWEAR by Vasoline for chafing! Good stuff!
