wow. a doctor? You guys run to a doctor for this?

Anyway, my 2 cents - I ride about 30 miles per day, 4-5 days per week. I get the sore lump here and there. No big deal. This might be a dumb question but do you wear underwear while biking? Generally not a good idea as it bunches up or constricts and contributes to saddle sore. Also various cremes like chamois or Ho-Ha that get applied prior to riding to soften the skin and make it generally more receptive to what it is about to receive.

Last but not least, have you changed the angle of your saddle recently. It could be a contributor to your sores.
