Chafing is skin irritation that occurs where skin rubs against skin, clothing, shoes, or other materials and is a problem typically experienced in sports or in the armed services in connection with activities such as running, jogging, hiking, etc. Skin chafing is also a problem in infants in the form of diaper rash. Dr Li has successfully formulated an anti-chafing cream that applies smoothly to create a smooth, velvet surface for skin protection and prevent the chafing problem of the skin to temporarily alleviate the irritation.
