I have had really bad acne between my thighs for years and it goes and comes back. It is gotten really bad I have tried exfoliating and anti bacterial soap I don't know what to do. I thought it they were ingrown hairs but when I pop them and tried to find a hair to pull out there is no hair there. So they may be cysts how do i treat this help me please. The pictures are pretty gross but i want to fix this.

I am currently trying sulfur soap and it seems to be improving but it has only been a couple days  I am also using this recipe its homemade tendskin recipe maybe some of the bumps are ingrown hairs this is the recipe

solution 1:
18 tablets uncoated aspirin, crushed
5 oz. rubbing alcohol
combine.

solution 2:
8 tablets uncoated aspirin, crushed
2.5 oz. witch hazel
combine.

combine the two solutions. the aspirin will settle a bit, so shake it before use. . it can also be used to spot treat blemishes. (aspirin is acetic and salicylic acids.)

I will post  picture updates soo

I'm thinking that's folliculitis. You shave,  that opens the skin up to bacteria then if bacteria gets in it will cause acne. I would actually start cleansing your body with an anti-bacterial soap 2x a day. Avoid baths.

Thanks so much for this post. When I saw your pictures I was surprised to see that it looked exactly like what im going through. What brand sulfur soap are you using and are u turning the asprin mixture into a paste, or spray. Lastly how are you applying it... sorry for all the questions, but I see you've had results. Any info would help... Thanks

hi sorry it took me so long to reply but I use Grisi Sulfur Soap with Lanolin for Acne which I bought off amazon and for the aspirin mixture its not a paste or spray i just put into a bottle and pour it on to a cotton ball and apply to my thighs. But i'm sure you can use the mixture as a spray and for the aspirin mixture I use the cheapest aspirin at Walmart the 98 cent kind. Good luck and don't expect results right away it took me a few weeks to see improvement but I hope it works for you if you try it let me know.

My bf had the same problem, but in his beard area. Folliculitis. I found an awesome sulfur/3% salycilic acid soap online, called SAL3 (www.SAL3.com). They make the soap themselves, and it only has a few ingredients (more is NOT better when it comes to ingredients in your face products). They offer free shipping, each bar of soap is less than $6 and a bar lasts for at least 3+ months when used daily. It worked WONDERS on my bf's Folliculitis, the bumps are gone, the itchies are gone and the skin tone where the bumps used to be is even.

Zinc oxide, in cream/lotion, at a high % (20%+) will relieve itching and reduce inflammation & swelling. The best version I've found is Desitin in the purple container (yes, the diaper cream, you'll find it in the baby care aisle at any drug store), it has the highest % of zinc oxide. It is extremely thick & creamy and the white residue will not rub in completely, ever, don't bother trying. It's not supposed to fully absorb, but is to remain on the surface of the skin as a barrier. Luckily, this will be on your thighs, so not readily visible. Apply as many times a day as needed. Don't apply too thick, or it will just be a spackled mess. It's difficult to wash off skin, but with soap, it should come off. In all reality, you really don't need to remove the zinc oxide, as it isn't occlusive.

I have had this problem for as long as I can remember...it seems to get worse during the summer days..i went to an infectious disease specialist...not to say that this condition is an infectious disease....but she stated that my body was colonized by staphylococcus bacterium and that I needed to decolonize...she informed me to buy a over the counter antiseptic cleanser named HIBICLENS I am to bath my entire body with it twice daily and also she prescribed an antibaciterial cream bactroban which I am to apply twice daily to the affected area being my thighs...I am starting this out today so I will let everyone know of the results I am desperate at this point....having thigh acne is so discouraging...I am ashamed to engage In sexually encounters due to it ......I have been told people don't care....but I know that is a lie cause I care...its ugly and I pray to God this treatment works

 

 

of course she informed me also to only wear breathable cotton clothing...I am not to shave and or was since this introduces more bacteria in the pores and also creates in grown hairs and irritates the skin causing it to become inflamed...as an alternative to shaving she said consider getting laser her removal or  use a dissolving agent such as nair or veet to get rid of the hairs.....and after I have decolonized for 2- 3 months with the hibiclens and bactroban cream I am to only use antiseptic and antimicrobial soaps such as dial and carboic or detol soap

Hi, I just wanted to share my experience with you. I have some acnes on my face and I think I found cheap and more natural solution. I wash my face and apply a tincture of iodine (aka baticon) at night. I leave it and in the morning I wash it. And it really helps to recover any acne. You can use it for your legs too. Just apply it on acnes. At first, it colours so after 5 mn you can get dressed. You can repeat this, untill they're gone. Hope it helps. Let me know about the results!
