Bike shorts and hygiene

I am a keen cyclist and doing lots of cycling on my turbo trainer as the weather is rubbish here. I have a persistent lump that comes up in my groin which I think is from a blocked hair follicle which might have been irritated by the occasional high BG and training in a warm environment. I use surgical scrub straight after my training but it is a real pain. Any advice? Ladies would any of you recommend waxing?See More
