Some of the things on my butt are ingrown hairs. Others I have no idea what they are - boils maybe? It's all discolored. The unknown bumps are large and you can feel more lumps inside.

The discoloration is also on my inner thigh, and a few small bumps.

Hello and welcome
Your concern is appreciated
Ideally that would need an examination as what are these bumps but most likely it can be ingrown hairs, folliculitis which is infection of hair follicles, carbuncles, dark pimple fornation. It mostly results from clogged pores of skin or hair follicles or glands in the skin, can be sebaceous cyst, pilonidal sinus is one another possibility.
The treatment is cause directed but keeping the area dry and clean wearing loose clothing can prevent many of this antibiotics is given when there is invloved infection.
