I am trying to loose my weight, by jogging/running for about 18-20 minutes in the morning.

But the issue that i am having is that after a jogging session i get rashes on high thighs, giving at least one day lull in the programme; resulting in breaking the regularity/punctuality.

I want to get rid of the rashes, any suggestions would be helpful.

I'm assuming the chafing is where your thighs are rubbing. Longer shorts, long underwear and bodyglide will help cut the chafing.

Also wearing tighter, stretching clothing is less likely to rub as much – Ivo Flipse Aug 8 '12 at 9:15
Do these tighter, longer shorts need to be compression apparel or just longer and preferably seamless fabric? – posdef Jun 25 '13 at 14:36
Whatever is comfortable. Seams may or may not make a difference, and it doesn't necessarily need to be compression. You just have to try different ones out and see what works for you. – JohnP Jun 25 '13 at 14:46
