I have recently seen some bites on my upper thigh and even a couple on my genital area and they look like small pimples and itchy with redness?
Many possibilities: Any of several skin conditions could cause this. Although people often assume insect bites, it's an uncommon cause. But I do wonder about scabies, or perhaps pubic lice (crabs).

Good luck! ...Read more
