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. ...Read more

Show them to a Dr.: 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. ...Read more

Infection: A slight irritation from an allergy or possible yeast infection. You may attempt to call your doctor to see what they suggest, however if it itches or is painful you may need an antibiotic and cream or both. Over the counter steroid creams may help if it's an allergy, but won't if it's an infection. Again please ask your doctor, by the way miss the area, i went to medical school in norfolk. ...Read more

On my inner right thigh I have purple small dots around a red bump. what could it be?

Red bump: Hi KavitaB, the red bump is likely a bug bite, pimple, or blocked follicle. The 'spots' around it are from the tiny blood vessels surrounding the wound becoming engorged with blood to help with the healing process. If it goes away in a few days then no big deal. However, if the purple spots start to spread or if the red bump becomes larger, painful, or starts to ooze (pus), then go to your doctor ...Read more

Recently I saw a small red bump on my inner thigh then today it was now 3 small yellow colored bumps. I scratched them off but should I be worried?

Probably not, but: Stop scratching off 'bumps' unless you then disinfect them and bandage to prevent infection or irritation. You may be tough, and it may not 'hurt' but it can still get infected and lead to bigger problems than you want to invite. If it returns, go for an exam. Also, if you know of a possible risky source, have lab testing. ...Read more
