Swollen itchy inner thigh?

Swollen itchy inner thigh?

Consider your skin: If this persists it should be examined by your doctor. The most common causes would be irritation, contact with something you are allergic to, or hair follicles that are inflamed or infected. The swelling may suggest deeper tissue involvement such as spread of infection or trauma from scratching. If the thigh feels hot, becomes hot or red, seek medical attention sooner rather than later!
