Have a brutal wetty rash under me arms, anyone got any advice how I can get it healed up whilst I'm not surfing for the next 5 days?

Cheers

Am-O-lin ointment. The same stuff used for babies nappie rash.

Good stuff.

I use lip balm, similar to paw paw. And if desperate a little dollop of sunscreen not rubbed in does the job but will also sting a little.

Bike shops also sell this anti-rash/chafe balm which is useful as well.

I use honey on my nipples but that's only after the sun goes down.

When surfing with a rash
zinc, haemarrhoid cream, bepanthen all work well.
Also pawpaw or vaseline (wash hands well after so not to put it on your wax).

Should heal pretty quick while you're not surfing for 5 days I imagine

Oh, misread that, thought it was while surfing the next 5 days. Yeah will heal up in that time for sure. No need for those above unless your t-shirt is irritating it.
