I don't know what exactly this bump on my innner thigh bikini line is, help?

Ok so I'm 17 and I still have yet to go to gyn. I have been sexually active with only one partner and I was his only partner for a while as well but since then he has had others and I have had sex with him after that. I don't think I have a disease or at least I hope I don't. But I continuously have these what look to be inflamed pimples around my bikini line and inner thighs. I do shave there regularly. Sometimes they itch and become dry. Some of them have white heads and look more like large hard pimples but others times they are squishy and move with my skin with no head and the outter skin is soft, shiny and tender. They are always reoccurring in the same three spots. Anyone know what these could be? I need help.

It could be from shaving, try not shaving for a while and see if that helps instead use a shaving alternative like Nair hair removal lotion down there.  but to be on the safest side I suggest you got to your nearest health clinic and get checked for stds. Because you never know who is having sex with who and who has an std. So better safe than sorry.

They could be ingrown hairs. I shave frequently also and I tend to get them every now and then. They look exactly like you are describing. Most of the time they go away on their own, but if it stays red and begins to hurt all you have to do is pop it and pull out the hair.

yeah, i totally get these as well - they are definitely from shaving and/or ingrown hairs.

It does sound like razor bumps/ingrown hairs. I wouldn't pop them, try applying heat packs to the area. Exfoliating regularly will help prevent/reduce the ingrown hairs.
