I always wear sunscreen, and have recently tried Slide, purchased from
our bike shop (it does not help). The rash
is bright red, blotchy, and does not itch, but feels like a sunburn. Some of the areas are slightly raised, but no pustules form. The rash is bright red the day after riding, then gradually fades over the next 4-7 days. My family practitioner and dermatologist have looked at the rash soon after it appears, and have no idea what could be causing it.
