What can cause small red itchy bumps on inner thigh?

What can cause small red itchy bumps on inner thigh?

Many possibilities: Hives localized to the inner thighs may be due to multiple causes. The area is warm and one thigh can rub against the other. It can be due to cloth or chemicals in pants, just to give a few examples. Wear non-tight pants; when itchy, apply Sarna with pramoxime. Otherwise, keep dry with cornstarch or talc. Take an antihistamine such as fexofenadine or cetirizine. No help - see your physician.

Shingles: I wonder if you are experiencing the early stage of shingles. Probably best to see your doctor because treatment is more effective if started early.

There's been a small (non-itchy) bump on my left thigh for a few months. It's not discolored...I'm worried it could be a growth. Worth checking out?

There's been a small (non-itchy) bump on my left thigh for a few months. It's not discolored...I'm worried it could be a growth. Worth checking out?

Doctor can evaluate: A small non-itchy bump can be a wart, a flesh-colored mole, a molluscum, a scar, etc... If a person is otherwise young and healthy, the bump is unlikely to be a serious problem, but a primary care or dermatology doctor can evaluate and offer treatment.

Eczema: May people have eczema, skin irritation or allergy that does not respond to over the counter medication. Your description of the rash sounds like this, and the location is probable for eczema. See your doctor for a stronger cream, and remember to keep treating it till gone, sometimes takes weeks. If one or two creams does not work, you will need to see a skin specialist for biopsy and treatment.

I started with small flesh colored bumps inside my elbow and that turned into red itchy bumps. I now have itchy bumps on my upper inner thigh also.

Many causes: Often we have no idea on the cause for these bumps. You may try a topical Hydrocortisone ointment or cream on them for a few days. If problem fails to resolve or starts to spread, see your doctor or dermatologist.

I have an itchy rash on stomach underarms and thighs small patches with raised target like bump?

Get the diagnosis: There are many types and causes of skin rashes. Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause rashes on the skin. Insect bites can also be the cause of a rash on the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.

I'm having small red, dry, itchy bumps that look just like razor burn but aren't around my vagina and inner thighs, what could be the cause and cure?

I'm having small red, dry, itchy bumps that look just like razor burn but aren't around my vagina and inner thighs, what could be the cause and cure?

Need to examined: If it was not traumatized by a razor, then number of things including localized cellulitis, folloculitis, contact dermatitis are possibilities. Hard to tell by your description. Have a clinician or a dermatologist take a closer look if it's persistent.

Take a medication: The rash that you describe can be due to many causes. At this point you can take an otc class b antihistamine such as Cetirizine 10mg and apply an anti-itch cream such as sarna with pramoxime (not benadryl). If no better or worsening, see you physician.

3 days after sex I got small itchy bumps and few blisters on my arms, thighs, legs, hand and feet (not on my genitals or mouth), could this be herpes?

3 days after sex I got small itchy bumps and few blisters on my arms, thighs, legs, hand and feet (not on my genitals or mouth), could this be herpes?

Herpes simplex: That is certainly possible, but without seeing the rash it would be foolish to try and diagnose it. It may not have had anything to do with the sex and you may have chicken pox or some other illness, or this may be a contact dermatitis.

Hard to say: Can't really tell what these are without an exam or photo. Could be insect bites, scabies, allergic reaction, or a skin infection. Suggest you see a doctor to get them checked. Good luck!

I have small red itchy bumps which have spread all over my stomach, back, thighs, and butt. Also may have a possible ringworm, is this an infection?

Rash: You have to have a doctor look at it to determine if the rash is an infection and if it is contagious. Ringworm does not cause widespread rashes like this usually.

Dry lips, sore throat, diarrhea and lost of appetite. Also small itchy bumps (two blisters) on my arms, thighs, legs, hand and feet. Is this herpes?

Dry lips, sore throat, diarrhea and lost of appetite. Also small itchy bumps (two blisters) on my arms, thighs, legs, hand and feet. Is this herpes?

No: This sounds more like a viral infection, other than herpes. It should go away on its own. Just be sure to stay hydrated, given your loss of appetite. Hope this helps!
