Saddle sores are caused by chafing and moisture. Once you let the problem heal (tea tree oil is a great help) use talcum powder. It's the ticket. If you think about it and gymnasts, weight lifters,golfers and mothers (baby diapers) do, it only makes sense that you'd want something dry and slippery not wet and goopy. Of course its too cheap and available to make money on and you won't read a romance novel about Dave Zabrieske and all the hype CC writes,but try it.
