Red dots on inner thighs near pubic area.

   I have about 20-25 red dots spread around my inner thighs near pubic area but not on it (being the scrotum, pubic hair area, or penis).  These red dots are barley raised off of the skin. The largest are a bit bigger then the size of a pencil eraser. The smallest being a little smaller then half the circumference of a pencil eraser. I HAVE NEVER HAD any kind of SEX (be it anal, oral, vaginal). Like I said before it is not directly on anything  the immediate pubic area.

     I play soccer and I do sweat down there. Although, it does not look like heat rash. I wear compression shorts only while playing games. I have noticed these spots for about a week now and they seem to be lessening a bit or staying the same.

     I have Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream USP 0.1% (Triamcinolon)-(Steroid cream..?) which was originally prescribed for mosquito bites. Should I use that cream on them? I also have Lupin 203 (Cefuroxme 250MG) (antibiotic...?) for my acne.. which i rarely have now. What should I do?

     I need help. They red dots don't itch much and are not in clusters they are just spread all around, PLEASE HELP ME find out what going on though because it is a  bit annoying.

THis could be cherry angiomas, though nothing can be said with surety without having a look at the lesions.

Cherry angiomas are benign , fairly common skin growths that vary in size. They can occur almost anywhere on the body but usually develop on the trunk.

They are most common after age 40. The cause is unknown. Although painless and harmless, cherry angiomas may bleed profusely if injured.


Cherry angiomas generally do not need to be treated. If they are cosmetically displeasing or prone to bleeding, angiomas may be removed by surgery, freezing (cryotherapy ), burning (electrosurgery/cautery), or laser.
