Dealing with/ Preventing Underwear Sores
Dealing with a terrible underwear sore right now. You know the kind you get from riding right where your leg attaches to your body, right where the hem/seam of your underwear is, right where there is a tendon or something that causes you to get those pressure sores or whatever they are. The sores look just like raised bumps, maybe a little red or white and are terribly painful when you ride, put pressure on them, or have your underwear cut into them. Supposedly they are 'boils' that some people say you have to pop to feel better, I have only had one that I could pop (the rest went away on their own when they had enough time where they weren't irritated). The one I popped just leaked a clear liquid. The one I currently have (got it Thursday) may be one that pops too as it feels like it might but it isn't to the surface enough.
I thought this style of underwear I bought was gonna help. I has big 'bands' of soft fabric around the leg holes with no seams in that area. At first they seemed to help prevent them I thought but it seems now that I just got lucky for a bit not to get them cause every style of underwear I own I think has caused it.
So what style of underwear do you use to help prevent these? What else do you do to prevent them? And if you do have one, what's the best way to get rid of it or find a way to stop them from hurting, especially while riding?
Not looking forward to tomorrow's ride.
