I used this for my chaffing in the armpit region. A little dab does the job. It goes on clear and has a silky feel to it. The gel dries fairly quickly once applied. I don't even have to reapply until I shower or the next day; whichever comes first. Almost immediately my irritation subsides. I had tried Gold Bond Friction Defense for the same area with pretty bad results. Lanacane's product is so much better.
