I have pimple that errupting between my inner thigh &butt. I ate a lot of bing cherries in the summer. Now its back to a head.?

Bing's are great!: Bing cherries are great. Actually, all the cherry varieties are wonderful fruit. Fortunately, cherries don't have anything to do with pimples, boils, or abscesses. For a single small pimple that breaks open and dries up on its own, no special treatment is needed. One can just wash it well and put some over-the-counter first-aid antibiotic ointment on it. Anything bigger should be seen by a doctor. ...Read more

Have pimple in my inner thigh that hurts were my underwear line is doesn't have a head to pop it and it just hurts when I try to pop it?

Boil: A boil is a localized infection in the skin that begins as a reddened, tender area. Over time, the area becomes firm, hard, and more tender. Eventually, the center of the boil softens and becomes filled with infection-fighting white blood cells from the bloodstream to eradicate the infection. This collection of white blood cells, bacteria, and proteins is known as pus. You need antibiotics. ...Read more

Had a pimple on my inner thigh. Very large, but under skin. Popped it, but no puss came out. I felt it pop under my skin. Should I worry about this?

Have it checked: By a doctor. There still could be an infection/abscess there, which may need further drainage and/or an oral antibiotic. Please don't try to "pop" it again; you may cause a worsening infection by doing this yourself at home. Warm compresses can be applied meanwhile until you can see your doctor. ...Read more

Bumps on my thighs that look like pimples, once gone they leave dark spots.

Bumps on my thighs that look like pimples, once gone they leave dark spots.

See your doctor.: It's hard to know the definite diagnosis without the lesions being seen. It sounds like they could be secondary to a bacterial infection or an irritation from something. The dark spots sound like they are the scars left from the inflammation. These should fade eventually, but could take quite a while. So, if you are still concerned, please see your doctor or a dermatologist. ...Read more

Husband. 25. 5^9 185pounds. He has tiny pimple type bumps on his UPPER inner thigh -by his testicle area. What's cause it?? Wears boxers by Hanes.

Here are some...: Without a direct look & feel on these bumps, it is hard to offer right Dx for right care although clinically they most likely represent the common occurrence of hyperactive sebaceous glands of hair follicles, which requires no Rx unless developing rare or occasional infection like that in the acne of the face. It's not related with underwear. More? See urologist for confirmation... ...Read more

Red pimples, could this be inner thigh thrush?

Umm, hard to say.: Skin rashes are most difficult to diagnose without actually examining them. Can you feel the spot? Is it crusted? Ever have it before? Since the area is now raising concern, perhaps it would be wise to have your family md or dermatologist examine. Then specific treatment could be discussed with more accuracy. Pimples, especially if increasing in number poses bothersome questions... ...Read more
