- Saddle sores
Barrier creams tend be reeled out for the torrential diarrhoea folk, although the flexiseal (http://www.convatec.co.uk/engb/cvtuk-oursltnfuk/cvt-portallev1/0/detail/0/1189/2141/our-solution-flexi-seal-fms.html is a godsend, but yes, moisturising healthy but potentially at risk skin is all the rage.
Is it a kind of folliculitis do you think? if so, maybe some hair removing thing?Posted 8 years ago
Not folleculitis I ain't a hairy type.
s'funny – nowhere I work are any creams used on healthy but at risk skin. Care of elderly and rehab. Actively discouraged unless incontinent due to risk of pore clogging. Is this a general thing or is it one of those ITU oddities 😉 I used to work in ITU and they had all sorts of odd practices without rationale. Not saying this is but I wonder.
I shall investigate this one furtherPosted 8 years agocrikeyMember
It's from the horses mouth, if I'm allowed to call our Consultant nurse in Tissue Viability a horse….
…and yes, I do have that ITU nurse scepticism regarding any specialist nurse, but it does seem to help in my experience.
I'm still trying to work out why it should be a problem suddenly; you've not put on weight at all? I'm thinking pilonidal sinus-ey but in a different fold…Posted 8 years agoprojectMember
Tandem Jeremey, i had a Pilondial abcess, and its not nice, had an incision about 4 inches long and an inch deep according to the nurses who came every day for 7 weeks to pack it and clean it.
Got told by a few nurses and a female freind who had a few that they can spread under the skin, and pop out at various places, can be caused by poor diet ,stress and anaemia, all things i had at the time.
As for pictures, its a bit difficult,due to location,and nobody wants to be the photographer.Posted 8 years agoprojectMember

PFB Vanish is worth a go, it helps keep the sores away. I also use antibacterial washing solution in the wash with the detergent, also called Vanish but a completely different company.Posted 7 years ago
I use Assos Mille bib shorts. Euro Style Chamois Buttr and all this helps along with washing and changing straight after a ride.
