Exclamation riding rash?

I live in Florida and ride at least 6 times a week, in the summer I have started to notice that I develop a rash on my lower butt (seat bones) and inner thighs. It itches and is a little painful, and extremely embarrassing! I think it may be due to sweat, heat and friction while riding. Perhaps shaving might effect it?? Any ideas would be appreciated!

Are you riding in jeans? I know what you mean about the rubs but thank god I don't break out that bad! Maybe if you are riding in jeans try yoga pants or breeches?

Been there before! Use talc - stops you from sweating up. Also, cotton rather than polyester jodhpurs. Once you're done riding, grab a quick shower and finish off by using nappy rash cream before you dress.

Shaving makes things worse but sometimes things must be kept tidy for our better halves...

Any chance you might have a yeast infection, or trichomoniasis? Trichomoniasis is often really hard to know that you have, but a doctor can do a simple test for it. If its not either of these things, try riding in a pair of underwear that is quite comfy, and leggings or breeches that are soft on the inside, and don't move around on your thigh/buttocks when you ride. It looks like you ride english, so I'm assuming you don't have a rough-out or suede saddle seat?

Here you go
Relieve the friction of monkey butt and painful butt rash, when you ride, sweat and sit. Anti Monkey Butt Powder

Also I suggest stay away from poor quality underwear. Something that is smoother on your skin. Shaving isn't always a good idea. It can irritate you more.

And don't wear lacy underthings. No matter how cute that guy down at the stable is.

(That was a painful memory >.< )

Thanks for the tips! It tends to go away after a few days so I don't think its an infection but ill certainly try some of your suggestions!
