Question: big bump on thigh
|Bamagirl66 - Mon Jul 23, 2007 5:16 pm|
im 18/f and i have this huge red boil/pimple type thing on the top of my thigh in the front. it is very hard underneath about the size of a nickle and red and sore all around it with a little white head on the side of the bump. what could it be?

Most likely you have a hair follicle or skin pore that has become clogged and infected. I would recommend you see your doctor because these sometimes need antibiotics to clear up.
Since you've posted in the STD category I'll just add that this does not sound like an STD.

ok, i just got an antibiotic today. Thank you so much!

That was quite fast. I think the antibiotics will take care of it for you.
