I've worn boxers, briefs, and boxerbriefs and have always had problems of jock itch and rashes on my butt and legs. Shaving the hair down there helped alot but still had problems. My doctor said maybe its just underwear in general causing the problem so I tried going without for a while. It worked, rashes were going away but I could not stand not wearing underwear. They my wife suggested I try thong underwear. I wanted to try something so I said why not. I ordered a couple pairs of mens thong underwear over the internet. I must amit they are the most comfortable underwear I have ever wore. Wish I tried them years ago and still no more rashes. It seem the seat in regular underwear hold my sweat and thats what caused my rashes. Now I just wear thongs and keep the hair shaved and I havent had any problems in years.View Thread
