red itchy bumps on upper thigh with numb sensation?

Sounds like hives

Numbness
Urticaria, hives, are caused by exposure to something the body responds to in an allergic response. Pink raised areas that blanch when pressed, itchy is a typical hive. Anxiety can also be a cause. It could be from something that came in contact with upper thighs, perhaps new pants, new detergent, new scent. Most cases, cause not found. Rx with antihistamines. If very bad, may need Rx w steroids

What does it mean when you have two swollen red bumps on your upper thigh? Could it be an insect or spider bite?

Likely.

Cat_allergy
Have 2 random red bumps on a leg could easily indicate something as common a bug bite. If it is tender or starting to extend the red discoloration beyond where it is currently, you may want to see a doctor to consider possibly infection post bite. Otherwise, if it is simply itchy and inflamed, use a topical hydrocortisone over-the-counter product.

Could a small red sore bump in the upper thigh neer the vaginal area be genetal herpes?

Yes

Head
The "classic" herpes lesion looks like a clear-headed small pimple. But it can certainly get red if inflamed. Bottom line: get to your doc and have a culture done to get an answer. Good luck!

Dr. Eyal K. Levit answered:

My husband gets these little irritated red bumps on his upper thighs. When squeezed a clear liquid comes out. What is this he has always had them.?

Bumps

Skin
This is probably a common skin rash caused by the rubbing of pants on the skin and sweating. You say he's had it for a long time so unless he's been taking a certain medication for about the same period of time its not a drug eruption (allergy). Pants made of a different material, something softer and more permeable, may help. Ask a dermatologist to take a biopsy of the bump to be certain.

I have these red bumps on my upper inner thigh and I was wondering what it is they popped up just a short while ago?

Wide Differential

Dermatitis
The possibilities are quite numerous. Breifly, infection (fungal, bacterial, viral, parasite), reactive (arthropod trauma, drug eruption, contact dermatitis), neoplastic (benign or malignant), miscellaneous. Nice thing is, most maculopapular rashes are self limited. See your doc if it doesn't get better or it becomes annoying.

I have small clear bumps on my inner upper thigh. They do not itch or anything, what could they be and how do I get rid of them?

Show them to a Dr.

Dogs
If your family doctor is uncertain, you'll get a referral to a dermatologist or other doctor. But, it's likely they'll know how to treat it. Don't try to rub them off or use strange tips from friends or family since skin is a sensitive organ and you can make big problems for yourself when you don't know what you're doing. Just get it looked at and relax.
