I have a big painful bump on my inner thigh bikini area, it's like hard ish at the bottom but then at the top it's red and squishy. I shave every week?

Folliculitis: if the bump is in an area where you shave, it is most likely an infected hair follicle, folliculitis. Try using a hot compress on the area to reduce the inflammation and it will go away with time. Taking Advil would help pain. Avoid shaving. consider getting tested for STDs. ...Read more

See your doctor: Painful blisters needs to be seen by your doctor to document location, size, and type of bumps/blisters. If needed, they can do a scrape biopsy to find out what it is. By itself, it's hard to determine, and you may be referred to a dermatologist who can pinpoint it right away and take care it. It's impossible to determine without seeing it in person, by your doctor first. ...Read more

I have purple bump inner thigh. Had for one month. Popped today and squirted blood. Lots of blood. Its never painful. Just purplish and shiny.

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

I continually get boils or large raised bumps that are painful to touch on my inner thighs. They usually resolve in about 7-10 days. Is this possibly ca-mrsa?
