acne on inner thigh

hello everyone
i have a question ... i have acne on my inner thighs, i've had it most of my life, i am also overweight wich causes some rubbing and scaring in that area also, and now that i am sexually active, i want to go see a gynechologist, but i am quite embarrased about this little problem... i would like to know if anyone else has this problem and/or what i should do about it... will the gyno be disgusted by it , will he or she ask questions about it , or is it just me being self conscious ....
thank you all

NOno that's probably not acne... thats probably eczema. If I were you I'd do some research on eczema, or see a dermatologist.

Re: acne on inner thigh

Ive never really had acne on my inner thigh but I do get it in my pubic region from time to time.. pretty much any where on my body that has hair. Acne should not be there for a long period, ie it might go & come back but you would not really get a boil or spot or whatever for years. I agree with the previous post, you could have a fungal infection or have eczema or maybe its just as a result of friction on the skin. Some guys get whats called jock rash from playing sports where they get itchy red inner thighs from the friction. I dont see why you would be embarressed about it with a doc, they should know straight off what it is.
