Has anyone ever had a saddle sore cut out by a docter.
No, I haven't
Sounds like a cyst? I had one on my thigh that took forever to heel, and left a whopping scar.
My doctor said that squeezing sores/pimples results in hard scar-tissue developing, therefore
encouraging a cyst to develop underneath the skin.
I sometimes put pimple cream on my sores, which works ok, but when they get
really bad (picture this ..... ) I sit in a small tub with 2 inches of hot salty water for
about 15 minutes -- works miracles!
I had a fairly deep cyst in my scrotum as a result of saddle pressure. The doc lanced it. It was a painless procedure (but you have to trust your doc). Aftercare includes good hygene and stay off the bike until it heals. Any scar tissue may cause problems so you need a clean heal.
If you have a deep boil then stay off the bike. Apply heat treatment and powerful antibiotic cream. Keep it clean and dry.
