It's starting to get hot again. In the high 60˚s this week. I rode quite a bit yesterday and today I can feel the chaffing. It's right on the crease between my thighs and perineal bundle. From what I've read this can be attributed to having a saddle that is too wide in the middle (I plan to replace my saddle sometime soonish).
In the mean time, would simple compression shorts help? Something real basic like this or do I really need to go with a cycling specific short? I'd rather spend $7 and buy 3-4 pairs so I don't have to wash them every night than send $40 on a single pair of cycling specific ones.
I know creams and butters help a lot, but I'd rather avoid those if I can. I don't have too big an issue, but during the summer I average 15-25 miles a day commuting around and I'd rather not have a constant burning of the skin for months on end.
