Hello XXXXX.
Thanks for the query.
Chafing is a very uncomfortable skin irritation that develops when skin rubs against skin.The Chafed skin looks red and inflamed, and can cause stinging and burning sensations, particularly when something rubs against the skin.

Following home remedies should help you

1... Avoid synthetic clothes and wear loose cotton clothes.
2... Determine the activity which has caused this problem and avoid doing that activity for few days.
3.... Apply petroleum jelly or baby powder or baby oil locally.
4... Reduce your weight if you are overweight and keep getting this chaffing.

You may ask any other query,if you wish.
Best of luck
