Come again????: If you need help with a deep wound see a DR. You may need stitches. Meanwhile, wash well with tap water. You might try steri-strips to close the wound.

What does it mean when you have multiple accessed on your inner thighs? There are multiple abcesses on my inner thighs and when one would rupture and drain, it'd heal but then grow back. Also the skin on my inner thighs is much darker than everywhere else
