Skin Cysts
Hi Doc

Wonder if you can help me please. My hubbie started cycling regularly about a year ago and since then he has suffered with painful skin cysts in his groin area from the chaffing.

Are there any creams etc that he could use to reduce this problem?

Much appreciated.

Dear Struggling,
Let him bath with antiseptic soap and use powder to absorb the sweat so that he doesn't chafe. He can use antibiotic ointment on the areas that do get infected.
