    Sous Chafe

    It had to be done. The most serious hurdle to coping with a life of professional cookery.

    Swamp Ass.


    I mean, check out this clip from Whites, 5 minutes in.

    It's a big deal.

    Solutions?

    Let's solve this hurdle, for posterity!

    I think I'll leave out the wasabi, but I think cornflour is pretty much a universal cure.

    Or something similar I can't remember if this is the exact one or if they changed it but it's similar enough that I would buy this one as well.

    I could talk jackets too or even how to modify your jackets as well if you wish. Really this stuff is essential in the kitchen. When I mention this to people at work they're like $17 for one pair of underwear?" Yes. I've even paid up to almost $30 at times. It's THAT worth it. Haven't needed corn starch since!

    This is a serious problem I've had all my kitchen life. It's especially worse in the hotter months. I like to think I have tried anything and everything. There have been some times when I thought I had it right, it came back worse than ever. The underwear and garments ThEoRy posted about definitely help, I wear them every day. Corn starch and medicated powders mix with your perspiration to make a nutt "slurry.
    About 8 years ago I had it so bad -I got infections on the inside of my thighs. Right next to the jewels. That's a fun trip to the Dr. At first I thought they were spider bites of some kind, but one of them reached close to golf-ball size(no pun intended). They were abscessed.
    The Dr. had to lance them open, drain them and then pack/stuff them with what looked like butcher's twine. Stiff round of antibiotics, and a week later back to have the packing material out. Nightly soaks in epsom salt too. The Dr. said if left untreated, the infection could have led to a blood infection which could eventually be fatal.
    Definitely try the stuff ThEoRy recommends, but my lifesaver is something that helps with the chafing and friction that isn't a drying powder. Keeping it dry down there is next to impossible. Doesn't it suck to have to leave the line to "powder" yourself? I came across this and it has changed my life(I know that sounds sad) and only one application a day in the A.M. when you're done with the triple S.

    Some on the inside of your thighs, naughty bits, other affected areas works like a champ. One of these lasts me about 3-4 months. Try it out!!!

    Just kidding about the wasabi. Gold Bond extra strength powder seems to work pretty well for even extreme cases of swamp-ass.
