How many drivers does a buggy have?
So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.
In my case I eventually found out I was allergic to perfumed (fragranced?) substances. These were present in my chamois cream, shampoo, bath gel, cloths washing detergent, etc.
What I did. Renewed my entire collection of cycling bibs and boxeur shorts since the fragrances were stuck to my previous clothing. And of course started using fragrance free products only. Was instantly cured! I suffered with this for a full 6 months so I was pretty releaved when I found out what it was
Best of luck!

Yes I agree with this post this is the number 1 reason. The clothes need to be conforming to the body but not constricting at the same time.
Try using lamisil for 5 days. This will eliminate the fungus possibility.
It must be an allergic reaction, it's not itchy just red and light burning. I wear a size small castelli but could really go a size smaller if they made them smaller. My jean size is 30 and even those are a tiny but loose.
I was thinking back to one of my better rides and i had worn a pair of castelli tights out of the package with a little chamois cream and the after effects were minimal. once i washed them it was back to the same reaction.
I have tried, DZ Nuts, Belgium Butter, Chamois Butt'r, Assos, and Rapha all with the same effect. I also have a natural one i got off of amazon but i cant recall the brand. It seems nuts i could be allergic to something in all of these but i guess it's possible.
What are some alternatives to the main brands, i thought of trying udder smooth (sp?) but not sure.
You say a castelli S is too big at a 30" waist?
