Avatar f tn hi i have an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Abscess</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thigh</span> its red and Painful i went to the doctor and he only gave me antibiotics! my question is, are the antibiotics enough ... or a surgery to drain the Abscess is required??
Avatar f tn I have been to four doctors, including an infectious disease specialist, no one knows what it is. Last October this large knot appeared <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my bikini line, right where the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thigh</span> ends, it was a discomfort, but it never did anything. My OB/GYN, who the month before removed my ovarian cyst, thought nothing of it and didn't want to open it since it didn't have a head. November, I get my general doctor to lance it. It's 90% blood, test results show nothing abnormal.
Avatar n tn I was pissed! The ER doctor first stuck a huge, long needle into my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thigh</span> near the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Abscess</span>, which went about half way into my leg. This was a VERY Painful procedure and it barely took away the pain (honesty I felt EVERYTHING!) once my leg was "supposedly" numb, he then proceded to to slice open the wound "so it could drain more.
Avatar n tn But a month ago, I had an infected pimple <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my left inner <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thigh</span>. It was a big size and hard. I could feel the pain from it. The doctor put me on anti-biotic doxycycline. It went away. But recently, I have small lingering pain in the same area but not as much as there was with the pimple before. Theres no pimple there but still a dark mark remaining from the pimple now. Could it be that the anti biotic given before wasnt the right one?
Avatar f tn I've had a lump <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the back of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thigh</span> for about 6 weeks now. Recently it's been causing a lot of pain and it has gotten bigger. It went from a pink color to black now. There is no discharge and I can't recall ever being bit. I've not felt very ill but have had headaches since the pain started and my sense of smell seems off and I have blood in my nose. Any ideas? I have a doctor appointment in a few days but am wondering if it seems urgent enough to go sooner.
Avatar n tn After they drain it ussually scabs over and leaves a somewhat purple scar. They have been re-occuring for a year now and sometimes if I have one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> one side of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thigh</span> another 1 shows up in the same spot on the other thigh. The main point is they are Painful and always have a white fluid that is followed by small to large amounts of blood depending on size. I have had them in the pubic hair area and sometimes on the waistline about where a belt would be.

Avatar f tn Hi I'm 21 and have been dealing with Abscesses for a year, I've gotten one on my arm, 6 on my buttocks, 4 on my thigh area, and 1 in the pubic area.
Avatar f tn Yesterday I noticed a hard, pea-sized lump <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my right inner <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thigh</span> about an inch away from my vagina. It is sore to the touch and slightly redder than the surrounding area. I do not shave in that area and I have never had sex. I am also only fifteen. Any ideas what this may be? My thoughts are that it might be a cyst or swollen lymph node, going by what I have researched on the internet. Please help!
Avatar f tn A few weeks ago, I had to go to the hospital, and they noticed a small bump located <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my upper right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thigh</span>. They tested me for MRSA, and the results were negative. For the past two days, I have started getting alot of pain in this area, and the bump is now massive and purple. Very sensitive to the touch. I had called the hospital, and they said it could be a boil or a cyst. I would just really like the pain to go away and know if I need to go get this checked out.
Avatar m tn It started off with bumps (zit like) coming up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my inner <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thigh</span> (also some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my arm). They would get red, warm, and have a red ring around the bump. They are somewhat Painful, but not so bad I can't do my normal everyday stuff. Then they usually get better and turn in to purple/red spots and slowly go away. I have one now on my leg and just need some advice.
Avatar n tn I have a lump <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my inner <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thigh</span> and it is about the size of a dime but,it keeps getting smaller then bigger and it is a bit discolored like a purple brown and it hurts only when it rubs on my pants or when i touch it. thanks.
Avatar f tn I had an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Abscess</span> removed a few years ago through surgery/drainage. It has left 2 slight scars that seem to keep getting irritated by my underwear/clothes rubbing against them, and one of them gets irritated during sex (which worried my boyfriend). When they get irritated they bleed a little bit but there's no pain and it heals again, but my question is, what can I do to prevent the scars from getting irritated by my underwear/sex?
Avatar n tn Over a month ago, an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Abscess</span> formed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the back of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thigh</span> (midway between bottom of buttock and top of knee). I was on vacation and delayed medical care. Finally it became huge and I went to ER where it was lanced and packed and I was given Bactrim and Cipro for 5 days. I used compresses on it. The culture came back (days later) as strep. After another 10 days, it reddened again and seemed a bit bumpy. I was put on 10 days of Clindmycin. Just completed that course.
Avatar n tn Hi I have found a small internal lump at the back of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thigh</span>, that when pressed is sore. Any ideas?
Avatar n tn My boyfriend has a lump <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> his inner <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thigh</span>. It's about 2 inches from his groin area. It's hard and under his skin. It first appeared about 5 months ago. There's no pinkness its the same color as his skin. He said it hurt when it first appeared, however now it doesn't hurt unless you touch it a lot. It seems to move when you touch it too. It hasn't seemed to grown or get smaller. He doesn't have insurance so we are unable to get it checked out.

Avatar f tn i have recently gotten boils <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my gentials...this happens when i have my period....i have severe itching, redness, swelling also....
Avatar n tn From my recent research I think i may have a sebaceous cyst <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my left inner <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thigh</span>, next to my bikini line. I was just wondering how long I should try the warm compresses before I see a physician. It is slightly tender to the touch so I am a little worried it may be inflamed. Any comments would be appreciated.
Avatar f tn I'm not sure if this is the right topic for my condition but I'll start here. Occasionally, I get a lesion <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the inside of my upper <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thigh</span>. I know one has appeared because it is sensitive to touch. "Annoying" is the degree of sensitivity. The lesion will be anywhere from 4 to 7 mm (estimated) and pink. I have tried covering it with a bandaid. This stops the annoying aspect as nothing rubs across it. After a day or so, a whitish spot develops in the center.
Avatar f tn hello there.....i've had this skin infection or something <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my upper innet <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thigh</span> right next to the scrotum on both sides....my skin is pink down there and i've had this for a few years now....im trying "BETAMETHASOME CREAM"...at the moment...ive used it before but i forgot what it actually did,but it cured my Abscess which were in my armpits i guess... help!!!!
1373228 tn?1278560848 Alright, I came to this site looking for help, on a particular problem I seem to be having in my inner <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thigh</span> area (specifically <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my right inner <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thigh</span>, about half way between my groin and my knee).
Avatar m tn Hello, 2 weeks ago I noticed a bump <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my upper inner <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thigh</span>, basically right between my legs (where my two thighs touch if legs are together). It is slightly red and Painful, about 1cm-2cm in diameter. I have squeezed it, and no drainage has come out. What could this be? It is larger and more Painful than any ingrown hairs I have had, and I don't see that a hair is involved in this. It has been 2 weeks and it is still there. I have tried antibiotic cream and warm compresses. Still nothing.
Avatar f tn I have a large red bump <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my inner <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thigh</span> that's quite Painful, it acually makes my muscle hurt for some reason. I've come up with a few conclusions but hope to get some input. 1) it could be foliculitis, an infected hair folicle 2) an infected gland 3) spider bite I've attached this pic for diagnosis. I tried popping it thinking it was a zit but it just inflamed it more. This thing came out of nowhere too, it wasn't there all day then all of a sudden I felt pain on my leg and there it was.
Avatar n tn Last night i noticed this not about the size of a quarter <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my inner <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thigh</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> that muscle that stretches when you try to do the splits or something, the only reason i noticed it is because i wiped after i used the restroom and felt it....it does not hurt or anything but the docters have always told my family that if it hurts its a good thing saying as it could be a lyphnode but if it dont its not so good.....any help here please?
Avatar m tn About a week ago a bump developed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my inner <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thigh</span>. I thought it would go away but over the next few days it grew very Painful and got bigger. The pain became unbearable so I went to the ER. They lanced it and told me I had an Abscess. They just put gauze over it and sent me away with antibiotics. Well it's been a week now and I'm worried how long before it heals? It is still draining I went to the doc yesterday and they gave me an antibiotics shot and did a culture.
Avatar m tn just the other day I was using the restroom when I noticed a small lump near my in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thigh</span> by my groin. felt a little hard, and i thought it was a zit. but I could not pop it. I have gotten something similar under my armpit, and I left it alone and it went away.
Avatar m tn I am a 20 year old male. Two months ago I went <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> a 20 km ride <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my road bike. I had a lot of discomfort in my pelvic region throughout the ride. once I got home I noticed an odd lump around the base of my penis. My left testicle had ascended into the canal. I lightly pressed on the lump and my testicle dropped. For the rest of the night I was uncomfortable and visited the emergency clinic to be sure that I hadn't done any damage.
