Women and Chamois cream
I am having some difficulty getting comfortable on my saddle. I've changed saddles from a WSD Bontrager (original to the bike), to a WSD Fizik Arione Donna and now a Cobb Cycling VFlow. I've also been professionally fitted to the bicycle (which was very helpful) but am still having difficulty. I also am wearing bottoms that have very good WSD chamois pads. I have not tried Assos as yet (I hear once you have you never go back) because they are quite expensive. But as yet, I have not tried chamois cream...
My questions are:
1. What does chamois cream actually do?
2. Is it hygienic? And easily washed out of clothing?
2. Is chamois cream a possible remedy for a woman experiencing 'in the saddle' chafing?
Thanks for any info or suggestions...and don't laugh! It really is painful during and after rides!
