Alright so lately i've been getting what appears to be pimples on the inner part of my legs, close to my private areas-mostly along my underwear lines or farther down my leg... I know it's not an std or anything cause i've never had sex, but they will pop up one at a time, and they're worse around my period... It could be an ingrown hair, but they appear to be pimples. A red bump that can sometimes be painful cause my underwear will rub against it-i dont know how to treat them or how to get rid of them, and was just wondering if any of you had any suggestions, or if anyone else has had anything similar-so, if you have any ideas, suggestions, are you have gotten them too, please let me know-thanks bunch! :d oh yeah-i clean very thoroughly with a non-scented soap as well... If that makes a difference to your replies...

Do you shave your bikini line? It sounds to me like razor burn. I mean, underwear rubbing is what makes me get razor burn in the first place, and I get bumps too. If you haven't had sex it would not be an std. Try "bikini zone" or something of the sort (if it could be from shaving) and that is all the help I can give. Sorry!

I also find that wearing synthetic (nylon) underwear is very irritating. Cotton underwear is the most comfortable and less irratating.

Bikini zone is at the store with like nair and waxes and stuff like that. It is a gel that soothes razor burn. There are also other ones, one of the other posts mentioned "coochie cream" and she said that worked very well. So, you are just going to have to kind of experiment with different creams. And hey, if you do find something that works, let me know!
