agreed, if it's not a fungus tissue as oli suggested then a bit of the o'l butt creme works wonders, if i'm going to be in the saddle for anything over an hour on my roadie i creme up.

Can you get Monkey Butt cream in NZ?. Its an anti-fungal and anti-chafe cream.
A lot of caddies use it for the dreaded cowboy syndrome :lol: Nothing funnier than looking across the fairways and seeing someone walking like a cowboy :D
Monkey Butt for the win. If not DZ Nutz is a great product too. A few guys here use it for cycling and say it works well

Zabriske did a interview with Armstrong during the Giro (on Livestrong.com), Armstrong asked him about the cremes etc and if he was going to add to the line. Zabriske in all seriousness comes out with " yeah we are looking at a womens line of creme, thinking of calling it Dz Lips" Armstrong nearly pissed himself!!! truely funny guy!!! :lol:

avoid 3b chafe cream tho, has aluminum oxide in it which will block your pores and cause all sorts of issues.

Aluminium oxide is nasty stuff. I sometimes get clogged up swollen lymph glands when I use antiperspirant (so, i stopped using it...) Unpleasant when they're under your armpits, but it'd be downright nasty having swollen glands around your groin. Errrgh.

yeah i was a staging technician for a while and working 14hour + shifts in lovely humid auckland so used the old 3b like it was going out of fashion, ended up with blocked pores and nasty boils in really really fun places.

Really?! Undies + chamois would be a receipe for chaffing disaster I'd have thought...


Yeah, I know, and I totally agree. I have tried without undies a few times, but just found it uncomfortable. Weird but true.

Have a good look at your seat for a cause of the owies. Could be that one side has collapsed slightly?

I sympathise :( It's something I constantly fight (hint to all........don't mush up your pelvis :huh: )

exactly. Judging by what's been described, I think all this talk of fungal infections is misguided. But it may not be the saddle that's off centre.

While I don't think it is my saddle, I have had a few injury problems (and have been seeing Glenn). If I keep up my stretches, and try that anti-fungal stuff I should be all go. Given it is only one side, it seems like a distinct possibility that it is related to my gammy leg.

Cleat position is worth checking too Pete - I've been playing with mine, seems to help.

Physiological stuff harder to fix than fungal, but so much better to explain to the Missus!

Of course it might not be fungal but it's certainly not misguided to suggest it might be. :eh: I have seen and head of many, many rashes/sores/etc., etc. and often it is a cause. Also, it can of course be only on one side, as your SACK usually sits to one side or the other, creating localised chafage and/or sweaty bacteria creating conditions. Also note that moist and muddy shorts are more prone to this than usual/
