Hot, sticky summertime weather is enough to deal with without having to manage uncomfortable rubbing and chafing between your thighs, under your arms or on your feet. Chafed skin can occur anywhere on the body where skin rubs together. Untreated chafed skin can lead to an infection, which is the last thing that you want.
