    2nd Degree

    I too use the hair dryer for my routine. The best is the use of an antifungal powder, I prefer the pray vs powder.

    Don,t use the dryer on hot and keep it moving.
    Feelin good is good enough!

To thoroughly dry these sensitive area, I use the Cool setting...no burns in all the years I've used this technique. If you are still concerned about burns, you could get similar results with a small/personal electric or battery powered fan.

      All the best,

      This makes more sense using a fan instead. I can't say I've heard of this technique of using a blow dryer, but if it works for you all then continue.

            Hair dryer burn on leg.

            Here's a picture of the burn on my right leg. Took 3 months to heal. Got burned January 1990. One giant blister.

                What PBR said. If you are buying a blow dryer especially for this make sure to look for a lower watt unit and a cool setting.

                Ti, I got soaked in a rain storm wearing corduroys on a trip. Went into a public bathroom and just sat under the hand dryer. I tested the heat on my hand and tried to pull the material away from my skin on my upper thighs. Took awhile between breaks when things started feeling warm but it worked and no burns. You were probably hurrying when sometimes being late is a better choice. That looked painful.

                  Never use a hair dryer on part of your body you can't feel.

                  Aw C'mon Ti, I am not saying put the hairdryer right up on your skin. At the risk of spoon feeding information to the others I'm just saying using BOTH hands (if you can) wave the hairdryer back and forth from a safe distance to dry off the nooks and crannies of your crotch. Use one hand to hold the hairdryer, monitor the heat and assess the dryness with the other hand.
