Also have you tried changing your laundry detergent to one that is free of dyes and perfumes?  Sometimes the reaction of sweat and chafing with a detergent can cause a rash.  But I agree, go to the doctor to get them check out.  If it is an STD, you don't want to leave it go.

You can still get ingrown hairs if you do not shave. If your thighs rub together or if your panties rub against them...a variety of things. It's a very sensitive area down there so many things can cause irritation which can lead to ingrown hair and/or chafing. I would definitely get it checked out but it sounds to me like irritation. I tend to get bumps right on my panty line on my inner things from sweating and my thighs rubbing together.

If it's not an STD, there are a few things that will help. Making sure you wear non irritating panties always help of course but for the bumps themselves you can use diaper rash cream or there is also a gel/cream that is made specifically for chafing. I know it sounds goofy about the diaper rash cream but it really does work! Or a little bit of Neosporin as long as it's not too close to your genitals.

I'm not an MD nor do I have any medical background, this is based on my personal experience.

i went to the doctor last week and i am so happy that i did. they told me that the bumps are from shaving b/c they are right in that area and to stop shaving. that i was irratating my skin and that was causing the bumps. she said that i should trim and not shave . and after a while that the area would heal on its own. not sure about the reasons why im having so many yeast infections but i hope that they will also stop soon and if not ill go back to the the doctor b/c now that ive gone im okay with talking to her about anything. everyone please go see someone it will ease your mind. now i havent gotten my pap test results back and i still may have a bv or something but im okay with the results b/c she said that i diffently did not have a std or anything like it.

thanks for all the support being on this site helped me go to the doctor.

Sounds like they are probably boils. These can be caused by rubbing and are like pimples. Hot ( I mean as hot as you can stand) compresses can help. Avoid picking at them. If they are large you may need antibiotics. I use to get them after my periods and this is what my Dr. Told me to do . In any case it is probably a good idea to show them to your Dr.
