From my experience, there are 2 main, different types of saddle sores: the large pimple type, and the "nappy rash" kind, which is like a "raw skin" thing, from too much friction or similar irritation.
I suspect that the 'soothing', skin repair-type creams are good for the rash-type irritations, but I reckon the pimple ones need some sort of antibacterial action if they get out of hand.

Not shaving around the area helps too. The hairs rubbing back and forth on the chamois area under the skin seem to cause issues as well. I will have to give Sudocream a go. Also don't wear underwear!
