I've been using this for the past couple months and it has worked very well at quieting down angry skin after consecutive days of long rides. I also had it with me at the beach and it helped to ward off swimsuit chafing too.
It's mildly but pleasantly herbally-scented, and it goes on smooth. It's somewhere between chapstick and petroleum jelly in consistency. I like that it's natural, so I don't worry about putting it on regularly. My only gripe might be the value - I'm halfway through my tiny jar already :/ I will probably buy more when I run out - hopefully I can get it on sale!
Bought this to help heal saddle sores after seven days of long rides (50-80 miles) up and down scenic mountain roads. Took time and some rest days but seems to have worked well. Now use it after every long ride. A little goes a long way.
I used Doc's in the past and liked it but suddenly a year ago I couldn't find it anywhere. So I was happy to see it back in the lineup at BTD and ordered a jar, not realizing that it's only 1.5oz. For reference, most chamois creams come in 4.5-8oz jars so this works out to be about $40-$65 if it was in a normal size container! It's good, but it's not THAT good!
Yep.... your ass will feel (and smell better, sorry tmi)! Fellow cyclist of 30 years recommended I get some as I developed a saddle sore this summer after many hours on the bike. Treated the sore with some Ichthammol Ointment first, which drew out the funk, then used Docs which really soothed the whole ares. Used the rest of the summer with no sores.
Doc's Saddle Ointment shouldn't be mistaken with actual chamois cream, because it's not. But it is fantastic to use post-ride to prevent and sooth saddle sores. I use it in addition to Doc's chamois cream, particularly when I'm putting in 10 or more hours a week, and this helps prevent issues with saddle sores. Also, the smell is an added bonus. My only complaint is that it is a little bit greasy, but is worth it for the benefits.
