MRSA stands for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. It's a strain of staph that's resistant to the broad-spectrum antibiotics commonly used to treat it. Sadly, cyclists are susceptible to this in some very sensitive areas. I was talking to a physician athlete friend of mine and she said it is on the rise in the sports community: soccer players on shins, cyclist on the taint, football players or team sports with community laundry.
She recommends: keep it clean and dry, get out of the wet chamois as fast as you can; avoid the double tour of duty for your shorts, donít ignore saddle sores.
