Red face Bumps on my thighs????

I noticed yesterday a red dot about mid-thigh that ended up growing to what looks like a pimple, or a blocked pore. It was all pus-filled, like a pimple and I popped it. Now it's just red. I have about 2 more that popped up on the same leg and one thats coming up on the other leg. No pain, no itch, they are just there. The first one to come is already going away after about 2 days. I have gotten these before, usually from sweating etc. but never this many. only about 4 though exist now. I did shave 2 days ago and I put lotion on this area that does contain oils, could that just be it? I'm not sure. Help anyone.

I get those too from time to time. I think they are caused from shaving initially, my skin gets dry and then I shave with a razor. Afterwards, I will usually put lotion on my legs to moisturize them, I think the combination of the dry skin and then the thick lotion clogs them and gives you the "leg acne". My recommendation? Don't fuss with them if they aren't ready, treat them like a normal pimple and let them heal on their own or "take care of business" when the time is right. Also, I would recommend an anti-acne body wash or a body wash with the little scrubbies in them (I have been using St.Ives Apricot Scrub and love it!). Sure hope this helps!
