I've also come to the conclusion that a powder - at least during these hot days - works much better for me than ointments at keeping the area dry and rash-free. Thanks for the caldesene tip, I'm going to look into it. I've used anti-monkey butt powder and a couple others. However, I am trying to get away from talc (due to asthma) and heard that bentonite powder can be used as a DIY. http://littleseedfarm.com/to-b...wder-dry-shampoo-too. Anybody ever try that, or have thoughts?
PS, for protection from leakage, however, an ointment still helps the most, in my experience.
