I have been getting these sort of cysts one behind my upper thigh a little beneath the buttock and one in between my right leg inner thigh and these get filled with blood and get pretty big and when they pop they are filled with blood and its a thick coagulated blood.. seriously blood clots come out of them and the blood is so red like if someone just sliced my skin open. its really scary because if i squeeze it it squirts serious blood and then clots come out. what is this? should i be concerned?
From the symptoms it looks like a sebaceous cyst which is common in the thigh area. Sebaceous cyst is a closed sac or cyst below the surface of the skin that fills with a white, semi-solid material called sebum produced by sebaceous glands of the epidermis. It can become painful if infected.
What exactly is this can be diagnosed only after examination of the area. Till that time you can apply warm compresses and some topical antibiotics like Neosporin. Consider visiting a Physician for evaluation and precise diagnosis.
