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

Folliculitis?: Your description suggests bacterial infection of hair follicles. Usually will develop small pustules(pimples). Bactroban antibiotic cream may help but if not responding will need culture for MRSA and oral antibiotics. Suggest you see your physician for proper diagnosis and Rx. ...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

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
