    Well, it's time this topic appeared.

     

    Saddle sores.

     

    Anyone have a regimen for preventing them, and for getting ride of them once you get one?

     

    'Cuz, damn this thing hurts. Can't put power down when your taint hates you...

        I like the greasy stuff. Good ole Aquaphor works good for me.

         

        If it was any body else I would have said ride more ! Most people get saddle sores cause they suddenly decided to do a century and up until that point have never ridden more than 20 miles.

         

        You weren't wearing cheap shorts were you ?  That's usually the culprit for me.

          Wash with Cetaphil and use Bag Balm. 

           

          Do you get saddle sores often?

            Heh, you don't know me well, do you? All bibs, all good ones, all the time. I don't even know where my old cheap shorts are anymore, and that doesn't bother me a bit. Mostly I wear Pearl Izumi PRO bibs, but I have a pair of Sugois that I really like too, and a pair of Hincapies that I have yet to actually try.

             

            I've been washing it carefully (the owie), putting triple antibiotic ointment on it, and grotesquely buttering my chamois. Gotta find some Bag Balm - it can't be more expensive than the bike-specific stuff. But, it seems to be clearing up, even riding on it.

              He has "Assafrass," aka jock itch.  I totally called it.  I suspected it was fungal due to long, sweaty hours wearing chamois.

                LOL.......My 18 yr old son just found out yesterday that's what he's got.  Wouldn't listen to the old man......or maybe he just wanted to tell the nurse about is itchy groin.

                  I think Derek might actually take my advice to try a chamois butter with tea tree oil or other anti-fungal, now.  Swamp ass is gross.
