    Red bumps inner thighs

    I'm 18. I get around. But lately I've been working outside in jeans and its been hot. I don't know if the red bumps on both side of my groin are jock itch or an std. They don't hurt at all. Just itch. Any advice? I know I should go to the doctor but how do I tell my parents with out them knowing I might have an std.

    It's very likely that the skin is just irritated from your thighs rubbing against the jeans, especially if you got a bit sweaty down there. It's a fairly delicate area and if the skin gets rubbed and damaged, bacteria can get in. The bumps may actually be irritated or inflamed hair follicles or pores.

    I hope so. But like it went from a good amount on both sides then on the left side it turned into one big one. Any chance of herpes or warts?

    It doesn't sound like an std, it sounds like the skin has been damaged and the follicles are inflamed and because that area is very sensitive it can get damaged from rubbing (either against clothing or from the thighs rubbing together). If one of them is getting big, I would definitely go see a doctor because bacteria may have got in and it could be turning into a cyst or an abcess, and that often happens to hair follicles or pores when bacteria gets into them

    I bought some stuff for jock itch and I use gold bond and I think it's helping.

    I think it's spreading. What are the main signs of herpes or warts?
