Question:

I have bumps that grow on my inner thigh, I think they are ingrown hairs, Does anybody have the same problem?




 



Yes, I get those two and they are quite painful. I pressed one and this hard white stuff came out. They look more like black heads. Could they be just infected pores?

Any ideas?

I am a thicker young woman and I also have some bumps on my inner thigh that do go away and sometimes leave a little dark mark. With alcohol they literally disolve. I think it is because my thighs rub together. They dont hurt and I am personally not worried about them.

Yes, I have the same thing.. I believe they are from my legs rubbing together through athletic activities. Try giving the area a rub with cloth and soap everyonce in a while - I''ve found this can sometimes prevent the ingrown hairs and bumps.

I have always had ingrown hairs and bumps long before I ever had sex. Don''t worry about the small stuff.

ya''ll sound like some intelligent people let me tell you....the one dude up top is calling women, "wemon" and tellin people to get a biopsy, then some others are saying its from their thighs rubbing together....they are cysts people....they can be caused by ingrown hairs yes, but they just arent infact ingrown hairs. its a Sebaceous Cyst that had ruptured under the skin. It sounds a lot worse than it really is, when it ruptures it just speads out and flattens so that it's not a huge bulging bump like it was before it ruptured. It can be caused by an ingrown hair a clogged gland, or bacteria that gets into the skin after shaving with a razor.

Are they tiny, red and go away after several days? I get these too, i was concerned about herpes, so I went to the gyno (twice actually.) She was able to assure me that it is follititis, which is inflamation of the hair follicle. She said not to worry, unless they look like blisters. I am sure you are fine, but I would suggust you get checked out, for peace of mind.

Yes, I have that problem. They can get pretty large and sore. I don''t think that it is ingrown hair, because why would it only be on the inside. My doc said that she thought it was from friction and heat, especialy if you prespire a lot you are going to have some adjetation.

Are the Bumps red?


12/25/2006

yes

dont worry, get checked first before, dont think is warts or herps when you dont have the test, it can be normal, or wearing tight pants which is cauing it

I share the same perdicament... I have no clue what they are, mine are white and I''m capable of... bursting them such as one would do with pimples.

I always get red bumps on my inner thigh, but they always appeared to be razor burn due to shaving. I went to my doc. just to be sure, and he said that it was razor burn. He suggested bikini zone which is a cream that you can get at any drug store and it really helps!

Most likely it would be herpes or warts. If stuff comes out of it, and looks like a little pimple, then it''s probably herpes. If not, then I don't know

Do you shave your thighs?

I have black bumps in between my legs and I am 13 years old I have had sex once but I have had the bumps before then. Is this puberity?


10/30/2010


!


yes I get those too sometimes but it hink they are due to rubbing of the leg with your pants wich cause heat. But they eventually gp away on there own.


8/22/2006

Yes I have them also. I am a thicker female and I always thought it was because of my thighs rubbing together. I have had them every since I can remeber . The symptoms are they go away anf come back every so often. Most times I forget they are there because they do not hurt or itch. They also leave their mark behind.

yes. there are several possibilities:
first is folicalitis or celutoiditus. it''''s basically (or likend to) an infected hairbump or a boil on the leg. the causes aren''t really clear although diet (regular food consumption) can help or effect them.

you''ll want to use a hot (or reeeeally warm) compress (clean washcloth)on the bump/site. this will help to drain the boil and/or kill the underlying bacteria. if the boil/bump comes to a head, you''ll end up popping it (whether you want to or not) and you will need to drain the puss and subsequent Genital Warts. repeat/reheat the compress and make sure to keep the area clean until it heals. use neosporine/bactine and although painful, its advised to leave it uncovered. bandages tend to adgitate the surrounding area and the sore/wound needs to breath to heal.

it''s still advisable to see a doctor as they can perscribe meds to kill off the bacteria.
(good luck)

Yes I have those too sometimes. Whenever I shave down there, I get a bunch of them and they go away eventually. But I also get them from time to time b/c of the friction of your thighs rubbing together. It sometimes irritates that area

Yes I have horrible ingrown hairs I even have to wax instead of shave. Rest assured ingrown hairs are very different symptomatically from warts. Warts are hard and I think aren''t generally fluid filled, whereas ingrown hairs tend to be pus-filled.

Yeah I had one and now they have spread to the other thigh...what the are they?


12/14/2005

Check out this link, it answered this same question for me. It''s most likely Sebaceous Cysts, and the article will explain more. It was nice to hear I wasn't the only one!

Yeah but idk how to fix it


7/29/2005

I do and thats why I came here. cause im worried about warts.. but they are not directly on my penis.. they are more on my innde thigh where my testicles hang down.. i was thinking maybe a combination of sweat, and maybe not getting all the soap off when i shower... causing clogges pores.... i hope


3/23/2006

this is not a question but its important!!! if your a guy and have a bump you need a biopsy!! its when they cut the bump and sent it to get results!! wemon can get a papsmear to know....and for wemon who dont have the virus they can now take 3 vacines to prevent exposure to the more severe forms of the virus but for men the onlything we have is biopsys cut it and test it!!!


8/29/2006

I have those as well it is due to the fact your thights are rubbing together some even may get them under your arms. Try using baby powder to coat the inner thigh it makes friction between your legs smoother to prevent the bumps before applying the powder use alcohol to cleanse the area.

I also have the same problem, don''t know how to fix it though.

7/25/2003


!


yes, I get these also, and if you shave or wax there then that is probably the problem. they only started showing up on my inner thighs after i was waxed there.


7/26/2004


!


I DO!


6/17/2004


!


I have had those too thank you for helping me out I tiought I was the only one


8/8/2009

It''s most likely ingrown hairs, herpes or warts would most likely be on your penis, ingrown hairs would form more on the inside of thigh because they rub together there, shaving that area usually can help cause it, you don't HAVE to see a doctor unless it gets really big or painful, whatever you do, do not pop them


4/28/2008


!


Is it safe to lance it? Or should I just let it go away?


10/22/2010


!


Yes. I get those too, they dont bother me and I believe they come from the rubbing of the thigh area. When I chose to sit down and bust it nothing but water came out of it.


7/13/2010


!


The red bumps you describe are caused from excessive masturbation.


7/24/2010

its like the flu, from coughing smoke. duh
