bumps on thigh
Nov 23, 2001

I have red itchy bumps on the tops of my thigh. I first noticed this in the beginning of the summer and it calmed down for a bit. However, over the last few months the bumps have constantly been visible and are itchy. There usually appear to be more red after I get out of the shower. What could it be?

Response from Dr. Feinberg

It sounds like folliculitis to me.

Just a thank you
