Where do you buy it? The people at the pharmacy are looking at me like I'm a looney and have no idea what I'm talking about!

Running/fitness stores sell it in little packages that look like travel size stick deodorant. They may call it friction gel though. Also, I was able to get Monistat's gel powder version a couple years ago at meijer or walmart in the US.

I used this during the MCM last year and the places that I put it I did not have any chafting at all. I put a different one (Monistat) around my inner thigh fat roll area and I had horrible chafting there.

Deodorant worked well for me.

Gold Bond makes a tube, looks like a solid deoderant and works great! I also keep a couple of those Monistat powder/gel tubes around. Lifesavers, both of them##

Monistat Soothing Care Chafing Relief Powder Gel!

This is seriously the best thing I have every bought!! When I wear dresses, which is everyday when I'm at work, this is the only thing that gets me through it. The tube lasts a really long time. No odor, stickiness, color. Won't stain clothes. I urge people to try it out. And it's pretty cheap!

The Monistat chafing gel could be in the feminine aisle or the first aid or skincare section.

Bodyglide try sporting goods or outdoor store.

Drugstore.com sells them both. :D

Bought Bodyglide. Thought, hmmmm.

Stole my twins' Aquaphor healing ointment (wife shouted at me) and thought YEAH baby!'

Aquaphor stops my nipples bleeding on runs!

Thanks all, I still haven't found some but I used some deodorant and it worked well, though I miss the chafing cream. This is what I was looking for

I would just buy it online. It might be a little more expensive because of the shipping costs, but it's the brand you like and know works for you.

Post limit says I can't post links, but I drugstore.com looks like they have the brand you like.

Walmart.com has it cheaper than drugstore.com does, too.
Copy/paste the follow, then delete the spaces before you hit enter.

Walmart will also ship this item free if you purchase forty dollars worth of "home free" items.
So, if I were you and I had the money available, I would either go online shopping, or I would buy eight of these and have a year's supply. :D

I do like the Monistat anti chafting cream - for everyday things but have found that it's just not enough to stand up for 6+ hours of walking/running.

I don't wear shorts so that's not a problem, it's for wearing under a dress when and if I wear one.
