How to prevent chaffing while wearing leg braces

Post by Mr_Ed »

I am new to wearing leg braces. The braces helps a lot, but the braces are starting chaffing my legs. A nurse told me on my last doctor appointment, to start wearing hosiery/tights will help to prevent chaffing from the braces. Has anyone wore hosiery/tights with braces on and does it helps?

I got a specific Donjoy neoprene sleeve to wear under my unloader brace.

Other brands may be available depending on your country

Personally I've never liked wearing tights full stop, they end up falling down/ getting wrinkled.
