Abscess on inner thigh ±1 cm.Area around is red&tender.No pus yet.Causing discomfort when walking.What to do to get the pus out?Will neosporin help?
See MD: Neosporin will not help. You need to go to see your doctor to see what it is- lymphadenitis vs abscess vs other. Antibiotic should help.

Have 1/2 dollar size abscess on inner thigh. Red/Painful. On Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) X 1 week. No change. How long does it take to go away?
I have tested positive for MRSA in the past from an abscess on my inner thigh area. Does this mean I will always have MRSA? Dr was very uninformative.
Not necessarily: once the infection is adequately treated you will not have an active MRSA infection. your skin has been colonized with MRSA and no one can really know if you will always have it. there are eradication protocols for people who carry MRSA in their nares. i would say that about 1/3 of the people i see in the hospital have MRSA. it's not something to be ashamed of. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Probable cyst: This sounds like a sebaceous cyst, or furuncle. By "comes and goes" do you mean that it drains occasionally? This is a typical cyst with sebum, or a waxy interior that can become infected with staph. It can be treated with lancing and drainage and/or antibiotics, but best treatment is removing the cyst and capsule, so it will not recur. This is usually a simple office procedure. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Apply heat: This is the first treatment for almost any boil, and it should be done 20' 4-6x daily and with moisture if possible (warm washcloth or compress) to encourage circulation to the area and drainage of any pus. If this doesn't work, you could need for it to be lanced. If by "inner thigh" you mean vulva, in or adjacent to labia, then you should still use heat, but should also see a doc.
