Saddle sired

Currently been suffering from
Some nasty saddle sores. I have a new bike but I started off suffering them
Whilst on a bike I’ve had for years .
Therefore, I’m
putting it down to the heat and sweat that builds up around the undercarriage.
I use some classy bibs, ASSOS, Endura pro sl 11s amongst others so it’s not cheap kit.
Is it possible to purchase bibs that are more breathable in the crotch area than others?
Asking for a friend 😂😂😂

    Recover from the sores then look at chamois cream. Look at your saddles as well, everyone has one that fits nicely. May be worth looking at new saddle. Silly question, I'm assuming you ride commando under your bib,s.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Make sure you change as soon as you finish your ride - into loose shorts. Sudocreme before and after you ride.

    Make sure dry thoroughly after you shower.
