Chafing

Serial and chronic chafers - please hit me with your tales of redemption. 

I seem to suffer from it on anything beyond about 5 miles and need to use chamois creme or I’m red raw. I’ve swapped pads, saddles, changed position over the years but nothing seems to help although some are better than others. 

I have a tight lower back and hip flexors and have previously had surgery on discs - I suspect this is making me tilt too far forward in the saddle. My right side seems to get it worst.

Any other avenues to explore would be welcomed.
