have been here in hanoi for a few days and having a great time but with all the sweating etc, i've started to get some chafing\rubbing going on, can anyone reccomend a barrier cream or something of the like that I could pick up here???
Any help would be muchly appreciated!!!

I'm afraid I don't know what barrier creams might be available in Hanoi, but as someone with really sensitive skin that is prone to all kinds of problems, I know a few things that might help:
- A little vasoline, regularly applied to the sore area, can help a lot.
- A good dusting of talcum powder (to absorb sweat) can help prevent future problems.
- Also check your clothes - labels and rough seams can make skin irritations a lot worse. I find sometimes I need to stop wearing certain items of clothing until my skin recovers (or wear a thin and smooth cotton garment underneath).
Good luck, and hope you feel better soon.
