    Gi burn/rash

    Hey guys.

    About a month ago, I got a rash over my chest/arms the day after a national judo squad training session. I assumed that it was some kind of gi-burn. After a week I went to the GP and he said it wasn't a gi-rash (I'm still pretty sure it is) and gave me some cream which didn't work.

    Basically my question is how long do gi burns generally take to clear up, and what's the best way to deal with them? I'm still training and it flares up after judo sessions.

    Thanks :)

    I don't wear a rashguard unless I'm practicing no-gi, but I make sure the mats are clean and I wash my gi and shower as soon as I get home, every single time.

    If that means you need to buy another or a couple more gis, so be it. Feels better than whatever you've got.

    Cuz it's Judo and you just don't do that.


    My gi-burns usually don't last more than a few days. A week would be a really bad one.

    Does the burn still cause discomfort? Or do you just not like the sight of it? For burns (gi, mat, and/or sun) I usually use A+D Ointment

    It's usually for babies but it works WONDERS on my burns.


    If you still have the burn, for now I say wear a rashgaurd underneath. If it's just for practice, explain it to your instructor and I'm sure they'll understand.


    On an aside I'd just like to take this perfect opportunity to mention that tonight was the first time I EVER wore a rashguard under my gi. I finally understand what all you BJJ nuts are talking about. IT WAS HEAVEN!!! :D

    Is it against the rules or something that you can't wear a t-shirt or rashguard under your gi in Judo? I can see that in comps but who cares if its training?

    Yes, it's against the rules for competition. But a little Underarmour for training makes a scary amount of good sense. With that being said, some more traditional Judo clubs aren't always knowns for their good sense, and it might not be allowed.

    Depend on the severity of the burn. Once I forgot to bring my kneepads and the friction of my gi pants (and the mat) caused some nasty burns on my knees that took over a week to heal. If I had used neosporin and liquid band aid right then and there, that **** would have healed a lot faster.

    It goes without saying that constant friction will slow down the healing process. If it's a minor burn, you can just suck it up, but if it's an abrassion, you need to stop all contact and friction over it. You can get an infection from that ****.

    Apply neosporin regularly and apply liquid bandaid before rolling (coat that **** with it.) Wear CLEAN AND DRY rashguards/long-sleeve t-shirts (or at least t-shirts and elbow wraps) and knee wraps under your gi.

    If it's an abrassion take a few days off training and apply a lot of liquid bandaid, a lot until that **** heals.

    What kind of liquid bandage do you use (paint-on, spray-on, drip-on)? And how much do you wind up paying for it?

    I use this, which costs about $6:

    I keep one in my bagpack and another one at home. There is enough in those little bottles to cover a very large abrasion with multiple coats several times a day.
