Bleeding Saddle Sores
My girlfriend has saddle sore. And I don't mean just any old saddle sore. Bleeding, painful, off the chain saddle sore. Right where your torso and leg meet.
It's been going on for about two weeks now and isn't getting any better. Started out with desitin, that didn't seem to relieve it (even though it usually worked for me). Tried some lanacaine disinfectant. Tried neosporin. Tried prescription antibiotic ointment. Tried panties/no panties. Hot baths, salts. Time off the bike. Nothing is clearing this up.
She's definitely a trooper though and will go out and ride despite the terrible pain. But I think we're both tired of seeing a frown on her face during every ride. So I come to the experts here to see if maybe there's another solution to this that we haven't thought of yet. Help? Thanks!
