Please take him to: his doctor. It sounds like it could be an abscess (infection), which may need to be drained and/or may need oral antibiotics. Meanwhile, you can have him apply warm compresses to the area, and take ibuprofen for pain. Also, please take his temperature, if you haven't already, and let the doctor know if he has a fever. ...Read more

A thorough exam with labs would help isolate the cause. Could be serious condition. ...Read more

Muscle strain?: You may have a strained thigh muscle or tendon, most likely one of the inner quadriceps. If you feel pain or stiffness when you stretch and/or contract this area, you can be pretty sure that's what it is. Still, if you notice persistent soreness for a week or more, or if you notice swelling, heat or redness, you should see a doctor. Best wishes. ...Read more

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. If there is a large abscess and if antibiotic does not help-then incision and drainage may be needed- in addition to antibiotic. But go to see your doctor first. ...Read more
