About a month ago i had a pimple on my inner thigh, but even after popping it the bump remained. it is two smaller bumps that are close together to form a bump about the size of a nickel. it is hard and unmoveable but there is no pain to the touch. could the pimple just have inverted or is this something serious? thank you for your help.

Bump on Inner Thigh
You need to see a dermatologist - it is a keloid/scar that has formed from an ingrown hair. If you do nothing, it will probably get softer and smaller over time as the skin absorbs it. You should have a dermatologist check it to be sure. He/she can also inject it with cortisone to help it heal more quickkey.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Its infected lump. Apply topical antibiotic like mupirocin or fusidic acid.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
