i got it from being unhegenic(sp) but now its too late, what should i do...im looking for the instant solution, ive given it a day rest here and there and it hasnt gone away, im willing to take drastic messures, i want to ride tomorrow..i havent made the effort to look for it yet but i know its there, stabbing me with a pin prick every once in awhile..feel free to correct all spelling errors

and then tell us all about it. ;-) Actually, I just ride through the damn things. It hurts for about the first 5 to 10 miles in the saddle and then goes numb after that. I won't correct your spelling errors, but I will politely suggest that you wash your shorts more frequently.
didn't you have an epic carbuncle a few months ago? dood,bill

wash your shorts.
Go to CVS and get some Bag Balm. No, not that bag; it's for cow udders, but it works so well on diaper rash they sell it to yuppies (like moi) at CVS in the city. The stuff works wonders (it's a sulfa drug, make sure you're not allergic).
Then, repeat after me:
Wash shorts.
Use chamois cream.
use the udder stuff during riding or after?..ishmael

I wouldn't necessarily use Bag Balm exclusively after thebill

problem is gone (but certainly use it until then). How much/how often? I'm not really sure, but I'm telling you, the stuff works. BAD diaper rash gone overnight. It's a petroleum jelly-based, goopy stuff. It's also an antibiotic that I have to believe is stronger than your average homeopathic remedy. After your problem is gone, use mentholated chamois cream. I really don't know how good an antibiotic menthol is really, but it is supposed to be a natural antibiotic. Anyway, the real point is for lubrication and a layer of protection between you and your humid, stinky dirty shorts.

If you have a feedstore around, buy the Bag Balm there. You can buy a tub of it and it will last a lifetime. I bought a huge jar of it for $4.99. Woman are using it to reduce bags under their eyes. Neiman Marcus sells a 2 ounce jar for $25.00. Go figure!
maybe it's rust - stop riding in the rain - nmMJ

Ishmael's Zit #1 - My Zit, By Ishmael

Ishmael's Zit #2 - Still Sore Guys

Ishmael's Zit #3 - Seems To Be Clearing. Now, About My Frank...

Ishmael's Zit #4 - A bit of Haiku

Wash your a$$, wash your shorts, wash your saddle. key word: WASH! Don't sit around in your sweaty chamois. Use an antibacterial soap. Are you sure it's a "saddle sore" and not just an ingrown hair? Stop shaving so high if so. have you tried leeches for treatment yet? works fast. really.
answers sucked last time, didnt learn thing except clean more nmishmael

A Poem For Ishmael -- Not HaikuGregory Taylor
Apr 26, 2002 9:31 AM
Ishmael! Oh Ishmael! Please wipe your butt!
Your backside is festering,
You unhygenic nut.

Maybe a bidet, or some more toilet tisse,
And those pimples on your rump
Would no longer be an issue.

So please clean your a$$, and leave us in peace
We're really not interested
In the state of your crease.
LOL Bravo, Bravo. nmLen J

as(s) the last haiku was about his frank, here's some arse 'ku..JS Haiku Shop

quarterly sore arse
ishy, please consider this:
wash your shorts often!

unforgivable
leave the crusty shorts behind
actually, don't!

crustys on behind
likely cause of blistered arse
petri dish in shorts?

one H and one O
use hydrogen peroxide
after every ride

better yet, try this:
wash arse, wear clean shorts, then ride
shower afterwards

ishy, don't worry
'til both sides even when sit
with wallet one side


and, for Gregory
nice poem, good show, i say!
please keep them coming...
I like the "East meets West" synergy here...Gregory Taylor

Proper subject for Board? No!
Inevitable...

Seat of consciousness
Is his bicycle seat. Ho!
Must talk about butt

Scary derriere
Think your thoughts above your waist
And don't be an a$$

You've been riding for how long? If you're anything other than a stone-cold newbie, how in the hell is it that you don't know the basics of hygiene and using chamois cream????
