Folliculitis?: Sound like either folliculitis- an infection of the hair pores or hidradentits suppurativa- a condition caused by blockage and inflammation of specialized sweat pores (apocrine glands). Both can be treated with oral and/or topical antibiotics. See a dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Needs evaluation: There are many things this could be. Sometimes you get bumps from the friction of the thighs rubbing together. It could also be a virus called molluscum. I would recommend having your doctor look at this to find out what is causing the skin changes.
