Possible Abscesses: It sounds like you may have some folliculitis or abscesses with or without cellulitis. You may need antibiotics and possible drainage of the abscesses if they are fully formed. Analgesia like paracetamol and ibuprofen will help but also running hot soapy water as often as it is convenient and should help. You should let a doctor take a look at it to make sure that it is not something else. ...Read more

On my inner right thigh I have purple small dots around a red bump. What could it be?

Red bump: Hi KavitaB, the red bump is likely a bug bite, pimple, or blocked follicle. The 'spots' around it are from the tiny blood vessels surrounding the wound becoming engorged with blood to help with the healing process. If it goes away in a few days then no big deal. However, if the purple spots start to spread or if the red bump becomes larger, painful, or starts to ooze (pus), then go to your doctor ...Read more

Staph infection: I believe the most common explanation is a staph infection...the most common bacteria living on your skin. The thigh is a common place due to friction of your legs rubbing together, reducing the skin's natural resistance to infection, causing a boil. They tend to recur and may be prevented with use of the skin cleanser 2% chlorhexadine and/or a course of the anti-staph antibiotic erythromycin. ...Read more

Without pic???: The most common cause of a localized ("beside my armpit" "thighs") is skin contact with an irritant or something to which you are allergic. Review all topical products: deodorant, lotion, soap, etc. Unless there is redness/swelling/possible drainage, it is likely not an infection. Two sites:not shingles. OK to try OTC topical cortisone cream/ointment to see if helps. May need exam by your provider. ...Read more
