Re: Saddle Sore....OUCH!

Chamois cream for prevention (get it from your LBS). Diaper rash cream for a cure. I don't cycle but this sounds like good advice. I just bought some Chamois Butt'r (brand name) from a LBS to give to a friend who's training for his first IM. LBS guy told me it's very good and popular (not cheap tho...
