Pimples around the thighs represent folliculitis, not acne.  It's common, of no significance, and needs no treatment most of the time (unless it's really painful and annoying, which is uncommon.)  Goes away by itself.  Herpes doesn't look anything like this.  Treat the (unrelated) chafing with lubricant.

I have had what seems to be acne and and dark areas (discoloration) in my inner upper thighs. I have had this since I was 12 and it won't go away. I use acne medication and other products like baby oil and powder to lessen the rubbing of my thighs yet  I still get the acne. Can you explain to me whats going on, I have had it for years.

Thanks
