What is it with getting older, I never used to get saddle sores. Is it because skin dries out and cracks easier? SHorts are clean and do not sit around in the dirty ones. I only use cream on long rides (say over 100 miles). Maybe I need to start using chamois creams evenon short rides.
The boil is starting to get better, it only hurts a little today and it does not look as bad. Would you start a 600K on this coming Saturday....about 60 hours hence? I have to travel to the ride and can't just wait until Friday.
I apologize if such an inquiry grosses anyone out. My schedule does not coincide with too many 600k rides and I want to go to Paris and already have all of my arrangements. This has to be age related. My second one this year. I never had them in the past and I have no experience.....I am guesssing I would take a bad situation and make it really bad. I could probably do the 600k with sufficient doses of Vitamin M but I read somewhere that saddle sores can require surgury when the get bad.
Do I stay home?
