What causes chafing?
How to treat chafed skin?
Luckily, chafing treatments are simple. Gently apply the Elastoplast Wound Healing Ointment regularly once or twice a day. It creates a thin, breathable, protective layer that supports the healing of your skin.
In case a superficial wound was created as a result of chafing, start by cleansing the wound using the Elastoplast Wound Spray, to prevent infection before you apply the ointment. You can also protect the wound by applying a Elastoplast plaster such as Universal, Elastic or Sensitive.
Tips for preventing chafed skin
- using sports-oriented clothing made from special breathable material. Cotton can worsen the likelihood of irritation;
- applying an anti-chafing cream or ointment for chafed skin such as the Elastoplast Wound Healing Ointment to the places most likely to become irritated by skin-on-skin contact.
