Zinc oxide cream
When you finish your ride, have a nice hot shower and wash well. Then just before you go to bed, apply the zinc oxide cream on the affected area. Put on some loose boxer shorts (because the zinc oxide cream tends to get everywhere). And in the morning, all should be well again.
If the sore is really bad, it might take 2 or 3 applications of zinc oxide cream. If it is a fairly serious rash (the prelude to a sore) the zinc oxide cream should clear it up overnight.
I always carry a tube of zinc oxide cream with me on longer rides ... you can find it in the baby department of most department stores or pharmacies as diaper rash cream ... but check the ingredients because some don't have zinc oxide. The higher the percentage of zinc oxide, the better.
Oh, one thing ... don't use it while riding ... it's VERY messy and sticky. Quite uncomfortable!
