I have a bug bite on my inner thigh, it has a red ring around it and a black dot in the middle of the bite and is sore. What kind of bite is this?

It's hard to tell: Unless u saw the offending agent itself. Can be from anything- spider, ant, scorpion, tick etc. U still need to see your dr 'cause u likely will need antibiotics!

Lately I have been getting these weird spots on the inner thigh these are about the size of a fify pence piece really sore red and filled with pus.

More info: Do these spots happen after shaving? Are they around where the hair grow? Possibly these are folliculitis, a common skin infection, see your primary doctor for a course of Antibiotics.

I shaved my pubic area and saw small spots of blood. Now I have painful red sores and my inner thighs are sore. What is this? Should I be worried?

Folliculitis: Usually this is due to folliculitis secondary to ingrown hairs. If they become swollen to seek medical attention. In the future you may want to consider laser hair removal.

Go to see GP: You need to see your gp to get checked. Sounds like it could be enlargement of the lymph nodes on the groin that you described on your question. It could be caused by infection, inflammation, trauma etc from the adjacent area like on the legs, genitalia area etc vs other things like autoimmune etc. Go to see your gp for further eval.

Get it evaluated: This may be a lymph node. I can't be certain. You need to see your physician and get an an evaluation. It may be necessary to biopsy it

My bf has a very large soft red bump on his inner left thigh right by his genitalia that is sore. What could it be and how do we treat it?

Staph Infections: The most likely problem is an abscess or skin infection. The most dangerous and now common problem is the drug resistant form of staph known as mersa (mrsa). I would advise that you get him to the doctor today.

Right inner thigh to knee is sore feeling and makes me limp when I walk. There's also a red wide line from inner thigh to knee that hurts when touched?

Right inner thigh to knee is sore feeling and makes me limp when I walk. There's also a red wide line from inner thigh to knee that hurts when touched?

Have that evaluated: This "line" in particular may be what's referred to as lymphangitis, inflammation of the lymph drainage tract that can be related to an infection. Alternatively, it could represent inflammation of a blood vessel related to a blood clot. Again, I would encourage you to be seen sooner rather than later as this could be a sign of something more serious.

Red dry skin all down my inner thighs and calves, burns and is very sore especially in the bath? Jock itch?

Red dry skin all down my inner thighs and calves, burns and is very sore especially in the bath? Jock itch?

Quite possibly: Jock itch usually associated w/ men, but women get it too: warm, moist, dark areas are fungus' favorite place to live; might also be candida fungus spread from vagina if u have yeast "infxn". Both types of fungus r treated with antifungal (ones like lotrimin & desenex & Nizoral (ketoconazole) work well against both fungi). Keep area dry; wear loose cotton undies; use antifungal spray to dry & protect.

I had a red bump on my bum cheek (close to inner thigh crease) It looked and felt like a painful pimple, now it looks popped and looks like a sore.

I had a red bump on my bum cheek (close to inner thigh crease) It looked and felt like a painful pimple, now it looks popped and looks like a sore.

Pimple: This sounds like a small abscess caused by an infected hair follicle. It can be really warm and painful. Usually when it drains, will feel better but you should keep a close eye on it and keep it clean. If the pain worsens or the site starts looking worse, see your doctor because it might become more infected.

Penis scrotum inner thigh red. Derm said not fungal. Gave me vytone kinda worked. I have eczema. No more vytone. What is this? No itch no sore 1 pimple

Penis scrotum inner thigh red. Derm said not fungal. Gave me vytone kinda worked. I have eczema. No more vytone. What is this? No itch no sore 1 pimple

It may be jock itch: ...even if the Derm didn't find fungus on a slide or culture. Because the fungus can hide in the hair follicles, it may take longer than 10-14 days to get rid of it. If you still have symptoms, ask your Derm for a refill of Vytone. Fungi like heat & moisture, so keep the affected area clean and DRY, apply anti-fungal powder after bathing & wear cotton boxer shorts. Good luck!

11 year old son came to me saying he had a knot that hurts. It's in the inner thigh crease where I'd imagine lymph nodes reside. It is also red/tender?

Please take him to: His doctor. It sounds like it could be an abscess (infection), which may need to be drained and/or may need oral antibiotics. Meanwhile, you can have him apply warm compresses to the area, and take ibuprofen for pain. Also, please take his temperature, if you haven't already, and let the doctor know if he has a fever.
