For the last year or so, I have experienced persistent growths on my inner, upper thighs (mostly around the inner crease where the thigh meets the pubic area). However, I had 2 on my abdomen at one point. These growths have much of the same characteristics as cystic acne (which I had & cured with Accutane last year). They are about the size of a large pimple....I can clearly see them & can feel a difference from the surrounding tissue with my fingers. Depending on the size & location, they can be somewhat painful for a time. Some of them are filled with a clear, odorous liquid; some of them are filled with blood; some of them are filled with a combination of the 2. They leak & when ruptured, the blood filled growths bleed heavily for quite some time. At any given time, I could have between 1 & 3 of these growths on my inner thighs. They take a long time to go away....I've had one for about a year now that refuses to heal. When they finally do go away, they leave a visible scar & purple discoloration. As I said, they're a lot like cystic acne. I've been against the idea of having a dermatologist examine this particular area (for my own uptight reasons). However, I've used antibacterial soap, wipes & topical ointment with no results. I'm 27 years old & have never had any medical condition other than acne. What do I have? Where does it come from? How can I treat it?
