Ok. Lately i have been getting this deep pimple like things in between my legs. when i touch them they are usally warm and filled with some puss or occasionally blood. when i try to pop them usually a hair is attached i am really scared these are some sort of STD. Please some one help
These sound like blisters from your description. It could also be acne, folliculitis, dermatitis , etc.
Since when have you noticed the lesions?
'Blisters are usually caused by injury to the skin from heat or from friction, which create a tear between the epidermis—the upper layer of the skin—and the layers beneath. When this happens, the surface of the skin remains intact, but is pushed outwards as serum seeps into the newly created space between the layers.
Short periods of intense rubbing can cause a blister, but any rubbing of the skin at all can cause a blister if it is continued for long enough. Blisters are most common on the hands and feet, as these extremities are susceptible while walking, running, or performing repetitive motions. Blisters form more easily on moist skin than on dry or soaked skin, and are more common in warm conditions.
Sometimes, the skin can blister when it comes into contact with a cosmetic, detergent, solvent or other chemical; this is known as contact dermatitis. Blisters can also develop as a result of an allergic reaction to an insect bite or sting.'
It would be best to consult a doctor if it does not resolve on its own in a few days.
they have been going on for a about a year now. I always thought they were some sort of blister. I gain alot of weight though in my upper legs. and only until recently have i had one on the shaft of my penis. I do masterbate quite often though.
you dont think they could be an STD though do you.
last night i had 3 on my right inner thigh. 2 were extremely hard and the third was very tender but it was in the tender spot right under my testicales. It popped and this pinkish liquid came out that looked as though a mixture of puss and blood. I cant see the doctor right now bc of job issues. is there anything i could do from home?
i also get these from time to time over the past couple years, usually in the same spot, right where my thighs touch.
they are exruciatingly painfull and from experience with blisters , these aren't blisters, although they may be some form of a blister since mine are in an are where there is rubbing of the skin, but blisters usually bubble with a clear puss type liquid where in these leg "sores" they look alot more like a pimple on steroids usually very red/ irritaded in look.
they usually become so unbearable i have to pop them. i heat a thumbtack or some sort of needle to sterilize.. and poke the part thats least sensitive. thats's where all the build up is...(with the most recent one i had i actually notice that there was a LARGE "hole" that i pierced into and i had the needle in my leg a good half an inch with no sensetivity at all.)
once the skin is broken i squeeze the area until the "lump" is gone and ALL of the
?puss/blood/pinkish white nasty stuff? is out.
i know this may not be the most medicaly kosher approach ... but it sure helps 100%
id really like to know what the medical term is for this tho so i know im not going to die in the near future :x
i have been suffering with the same thing for also a yr and plucked the courage to go to the doctors, they put me on some tablets for 2week and they have nearly all gone. i do have the odd one pop up and yes it can be still be very pain full. my doc said it is a fungal infection cos its a place that is hot and always in contact with the other thigh. If you are shy and don't want to go to the doctors cus i no what it is like but to be honest im so happy i did because i was put tin a strain on my relationships because i hated my legs so much. But im am so happy now and glad i went don't be scared just go and get it sorted it takes 5 mis
