anyway on a serious note, it sounds like it was a skin substitute some kind of gel pad, prehaps epitact which takes pressure away form the area, epitact is available from ski stores and pharmacies but it is not the cure, it is more of a treatment for the pain...sounds like either your boot is too loose in that area or the wrong shape for your shin, there may be a really simple fix which a boot fitter can do to solve the probolem in the first place...o you have a footbed? how tight are your boots? what size are they ? what size are your shoes?
etc etc, give us a bit more info and we may be able to get rid of this permenantly
