The old favourite, Zinc & Caster Oil Cream, we used for nappy-rash has served me well over the years , as it still does to this day.
Never get soreness problems, its great !!

I use vaseline very sparingly.

On another topic people said it as too greasy, but I do not find it so as I use so little.

However, you can now buy a version which contains coconut fat.

It looks and smells more like something you would rub onto yourself rather than say a bicycle chain. Not that I ever have anything to do with bicyce chains!

"Lanacane Anti-Chafing Gel" Nick, that's exactly what I bought in Boots yesterday. I read all about Acriflex but that seemed to be aimed at post-chafing damage. The Lanacane seemed to be what I was after: Pre-chafing prevention.

John, I have just been recommended Lanacane Anti-Chafing Gel which from the info on the packaging seems like the bee's knees. Got mine from Boots and it'll be with me in Dorset!

Acriflex Cream, in a tube. We were recommended it back in the year dot when one of the children had nappy rash, and found it a splendid emollient for many skin problems.

Thanks David, presumably you recommend the "Acriflex Skin Cooling Gel" rather than "Acriflex Cream" (an antiseptic burns cream)?
