What would cause a "pimple/bump/boil" in the crease of your leg? It releases blood then puss?

Infection: This is more common with being overweight, excessive sweating and diabetes. Do not squeeze, it may get much bigger. Use hot compresses to bring to a head naturally. If it does not respond oral antibiotics maybe necessary. Your other drugs and any history of drug alleries is very important if you see your doctor. ...Read more

HIRADENITIS: It may be HIRADENITIS Supporitiva , a type of folliculitis is that can occur in the groin or armpit region. You need to be examined to make sure it is not an enlarged lymph node. Also lab work and potentially an ultrasound of the area. Your doctor may prescribe both topical and oral antibiotics. If it doesn't resolve referral to a surgeon maybe needed. ...Read more

Bacterial infection?: It could be a small bacterial infection or ingrown hair. Use warm soaks several times a day and see a doctor if it gets worse. This shaving trend worries me. Besides making people look like jail-bait, it can increase the risk of bacterial infections, including mrsa. I've seen some nasty cases in which men lost parts of their body they wanted to keep. If you don't like pubes, trim, don't shave! ...Read more

I have 4 little read bumps on my right butt cheek at the crease of my leg and two of them have a black tip, what could this be?

Sounds like comedone: Many things can cause such bumps but if they have a black tip, it sounds like something called a closed comedone, which is common with acne. But it can be at any clogged pore or hair follicle. Increasing pain, redness or drainage could mean they have become infected. Otherwise, good skin care and using soap and water, and keeping the area dry should help. ...Read more

I have a large swollen painful bump on my butt cheek it's in the crease of the bottom of my rear and leg i can't sit have any idea what it might be ?

Possible abcess: Sounds like you may have developed an abcess (a collection of pus/infection) in that area. If this is the case, you need tobee seen by a medical professional who can see if the pus needs to be drained out and possibly antibiotics. This should not get put off as these things can get very bad and the infection can spread, including into your body. ...Read more

I have a bump that's located between the crease of my right leg and vagina and i i believe it's a boil and i need to know how to treat it?

Boil: Antibiotics are often used to eliminate any accompanying bacterial infection, especially if there is an infection of the surrounding skin. However, antibiotics are not needed in every situation. In fact, antibiotics have difficulty penetrating the outer wall of an abscess well and often will not cure an abscess without additional surgical drainage. See your doctor for drainage and antibiotics. ...Read more
