this is embarassing, but i'm hoping somebody here can help!

we've talked about chub rub many times -- and i'm familiar with that as a (sometimes painful) red rash on inner thighs...but does anyone (else) get other symptoms?  Like large painful sorta blister-things?  i tend to get them in the fold between my (under)belly and my legs....very sore.  i've found in the past that wearing spanx-type garments helps because it holds the belly away from the legs, so the thingies don't develop.  But i HATE spanx and similar garments....so i'm wondering:

(1)  does anyone else get these?
(2)  what strategies do you use to avoid them or to treat them?
(3)  what undies and clothing would you recommend to deal with them?

i'm 5'6", 330lbs with a rack o doom and a belly o doom and no butt to speak of.....any help would be muchly appreciated! 

ETA:  I just want to say thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU!!  For all the information and advice.  And just for the validation that other people get this too.  It's funny, I usually think of myself as refusing to be shamed about my body, demanding health care etc....but I confess, I cancelled a doctor's appt on Monday b/c i was too humiliated to ask my doctor about these lesions/boils....now i not only have some ideas for dealing with 'em but feel way more comfortable going to the doctor knowing that i'm not alone, other people get these.  so again, thank you all!!!

And I've found that when they're really inflamed that if I use some Goldbond medicated powder on them that the swelling goes away within 24 hours.

I swear by gold bond! Especially under my breasts and belly before I put on my bra/pants. Keeps the ickyness away

Oh Gold Bond, I love you so much!

totally down with gold bond - i like Gold Bond Ultimate Powder - it doesn't have that gold bond medicated smell and works really well all day use.

My Doctor told me to buy Gold Bond ultimate powder for my chub rub. I get it bad on my upper inner thighs (I get zits there now too) and before my breast reduction, I would get bad rashes under my breasts. My doctor told me I should be using Gold Bond everyday.
