Pimples/ingrown hair from bike shorts??
Okay, not a pleasant topic but I'm going crazy here
I commute around 30 minutes each day to/from work and always wear a fresh pair of bike shorts each day. I don't believe the issue is saddle sores per se (as it's not related to the area of contact), but rather pimples anywhere from the top of my rear all the way down to my thighs.
They only seem to appear where my bike shorts touch the skin, so I'm guessing the culprit is that the tight-fitting fabric from the shorts is causing ingrown hairs(?). Regardless of the cause, I was wondering if others have had this problem and how they've dealt with or prevented it. I will say I've tried a loofa in the shower when I get home and even benzoil peroxide washes and witch hazel, but these blemishes still keep appearing. They also take a long time to go away on your legs and all so I'd really like to find a way to prevent them.
