Thanks for the links to A & D, and bag balm. What is it about these products that you prefer over chamois butter, and say a triple antibiotic for afterwards. Just wondering. I willing to try just about anything here.

I checked the Web site and it says it's for cattle.
Well, other than the occasional spontaneous moo...bigdave

I've had no other ill effects. :-)

Seriously, there's not much to the stuff other than skin conditioners. It's perfectly safe for humans. I put it in my, ahem, strategic locaations before I ride in areas that tend to chafe over a long period of time. It definitely helps.

funny story, i used it for the first time and had a HORRIBLE 2-day headache (sinus related). it scared the crap outta me, since the only correlation with anything out of the ordinary was the bag balm. silly me. i refilled my claritin-d scrip and the headache went away.

so far no problems with the balm. why else would it be sold in pharmacies over the counter? (don't answer that.) i asked about it's typical use/consumer and the pharmacist told me crafts persons with tattered hands use it to soften 'em up.

If it's good enough for my kids butts, it will be OK for yours. Seriously, no problems at all. We used it for years on my kids.

Yeah, bag balm is made for cow teets. I prefer Burt's Farmers Friend for saddle lube, but use bag balm if I've developed an irritation. It doesn't sting and works well for healing. Neosporin is good too once the skin is irritated.

had to use it on my own butt, but I wouldn't hesitate. One caveat, it does contain sulfa chemicals, presumably as an antibiotic (like they used to use before penicillin). While I'm sure that the dosage is quite small, if you are allergic, as some people are, you may wish to reconsider.
