Ride rash... not road rash... and the remedy

Hello,

As I still feel the need to redeem myself here, I thought I'd throw this out there for you guys.

If ever you get summer rash, jock itch, foot fungus or similar, perhaps due to summer driving or whatever, I offer the following remedy that works.

Forget lotions, sprays, medicine and just apply some Milk of Magnesia, the same way you would calamine lotion on poison ivy. Why?

Because it has a pH factor of 10 or more and in doing so, kills ALL bacteria (including surface MRSA) because of the immediate Alkalinizing properties. Bacteria and Fungus cannot survive in it, the same way you shock a pool to clean it.

Then after it dries (1 to 2 minutes?) apply some Gold Bond or similar, just to keep it extra dry.

Again, this works for any area of the body affected like this.

Take care, hope this helps... I know it works!

Milk of Magnesia???? Isn't that the stuff what my grampaw used to DRINK as a remedy for sumpthin'?? Guess it settled his stomach? Or stopped an internal rash!!!

Thanks for the tip, Jack.

Umm, OK.....

This is right up there with the post about the pedicure and how you can ride longer if your feet have been manicured.

There actually IS a product that will take care of what you describe, and you won't have to explain all those milky white dribbles on the outside of your pants: Zeasorb AF. The AF stands for anti-fungal, although if you have fungus in your junkus you may want to see a dermatologist - or a witch doctor!

Yes John it's quite true. Some folks do get fungus on their junkus. Ol' What's Her Name and I don't have that problem yet but she does have a hitch in her get-a-long and I did for a short period of time last year have a hinkus on my dinkus. Hmmm. I wonder if the Milk of Magnesia would have helped that. I know the ointment didn't.

But thanks to Jack for the tip. I actually do get galled from the heat and I sure will give it a try.

I can vouch also for the Zeasorb AF, but it is also crazy expensive. I haven't priced MoM lately, but if it works reasonably well I suspect it is much cheaper. Then again, a little Zeasorb powder goes a long way and it is also available as a liquid as I recall.

This thread is a refreshing change from discussion on final drives, oil properties and which aftermarket seat is the best. There is even the bonus of increasing one vocabulary.

Please don't encourage THAT in this thread. The last thing we want to see on this topic are photos.

Re: Ride rash... not road rash... and the remedy

A+D ointment also works wonders. Best to put on before you need it. If I'm riding in super hot weather, I also slather it on. Works wonders.

The best part? You can find it *anywhere* - and it's cheap.

Oh crap, I noticed I was at 999 posts. I just had to post another one.

None of this is true, btw, without pictures to prove it.

Re: Ride rash... not road rash... and the remedy

Hey Denny, good to see you here too. How's your LT holding up? Man, I miss that bike. I need another one. I impulsively bought a Harley a few weeks ago. Still riding my GS like the dickens, but figure I'll ride the Harley for a year or so and then go get another LT - or whatever touring bike is current from BMW at that time. It's been some time since I visited here and I'm not at all current on what's happening in the BMW touring world.

Do I detect a hint of "Minty Freshness" from someone's derriere? Maybe it could be called, "Gee! Your butt smells great!"

Take care,

Re: Ride rash... not road rash... and the remedy

OK so if you started out using Zeosorb, when should you switch to Milk of Magnesia, 5k or 10k. Also, do you have to replace the crush washer?
