    Saddle sore

    I've been off my bike for three weeks due to a saddle sore that is clearing up/getting better. It was not a usual saddle "boil" but rather a chunk of cartilage-like stuff about 5 cm by 3 cm by 1 cm thick that just grew out of nowhere and is now slowly getting much smaller/better. This occurred right between by right sit-bone and saddle. The skin was never broken and not even reddened. Does anyone have an idea what the heck this thing is and how to treat?
    Thank-you, Bill

    I've no idea, maybe a trip to the Doctor would be wise.

    Sounds more like an inflamed skin tag. See the Dr.

    Pics?




    JUST KIDDING!

    I'll join the consensus and suggest having a medical professional examine the problem.
