Aloe Vera and Rubbing Sores from Sport

May 25th, 2009 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

I am in training for my Hadrian’s Walk Charity Walk and did a six hour walk in hot weather over the downs it was tough going but my worst problem was chapping sores where the top of my thighs were rubbing. I got home and cut a section of Aloe Vera leaf and spread the gel on my sores. I got instant relief and hope to be sore free by tomorrow morning; will let you know.

Next day report, I am stunned how much better my sores are, I am not aware of them at all although they still look red and must have been close to blistering, another success for natural Aloe Vera Gel

I got home very tired and dehydrated so I ate a bunch of grapes which was an ideal way to get sugars, liquids, fibers and minerals back into my system, and was also delicious!

    Aloe is fantastic. For a portable aid in preventing this try rubbing some Aloe Evershield Deoderant on your thighs before (and during if you can manage to do it discreetly!) your walks. It is available from Forever Living Products.

    Go to http://www.foreverliving.com for info on their excellent products. You may also find the Aloe Lips, Aloe First and Aloe Sunscreen useful. I’m an Independent Distributor of FLP (I/D: 610-000-589-102) and thoroughly recommend you take a look.

    Julia,
    Great idea I had already used Aloe Vera gel to treat rubbing sores but had never thought to use AV to prevent them in the first place. Another tip is to make sure you wear loose underwear. By the way if you don’t what rubbing sores are, then you are lucky; generally you get them when you say do a much longer walk/run than you are used to. Usually when it’s hot but I’ve also had them when it’s been very cold.
