GROSS Topic but I need help

After riding for a solid hour or 2 I'll get kind of like an acne boil underneath my man parts. I have tried Gold Bond as well as antibiotic cream but nothing seems to fix the issue and it happens now almost every time I go riding. I ordered a new sargent seat and I'm hoping that helps to minimize all of the downward pressure against the tank where heat & moisture naturally builds up on a hot day. I figured this would be the best place to find an answer as Google has failed me. Gross... I know. Someone must have a similar issue and have a remedy

Is it due to sweat or friction? Search sweat pimples if you tend to sweat a lot. This is comment for athletes. Otherwise, consider bicycle shorts.

Just a little sweat I guess... I sweat way more at the gym though & doesn't happen there. It's because my skin doesn't breathe and the moisture gets trapped since my man parts are squished against the tank for so long?

have you tried to sit with a fist-sized space between your junk and the tank like california superbike school recommends? that could free up some air space

You could try the Anti-Monkey-Butt powder, or, for 1/4 the $$, just get some generic baby powder. Prevents "swamp-sack" and "swamp-ass" for a lot cheaper.

Me, I never got a boil on my nutz, but man, about a month ago I got the absolute WORST case of monkey butt ever, from my sack all the way up the crack of my ass, after sitting in a hot vinyl seat all day the day after a long ride. NEVER had that before and have no idea what caused it. And let me tell you, it was friggin' painful as all hell. Tried everything: Rubbing alcohol to try and kill any bacteria (Youch!!!), cortizone cream, jock-itch spray, antibiotic cream, even broke down and got some of that REALLY sticky zinc-based diaper rash cream (which is almost impossible to get out of clothing....). NOTHING "wet" worked. I don't have health insurance of any kind (being long-term unemployed) and it was to the point that after over a week this pain that I was going to go to the Dr and pay the $125 out of pocket. As a last ditch effort before I made the appointment I tried generic baby powder.....and within a day there was a big difference. Now I use it every time I ride or have to sit for a long period, and no problemo.

Best of luck!

Try Paceline Chamois Butt'r

Never needed it for the motorcycle, but I have used it for years while cycling and have never had sores, chafing nor boils.

+ 1 on the bicycle shorts, extra padding and better moisture wicking.
