How to treat marks on inner thigh?

Hi sorry to bother I am a 26 year old female and I have just noticed this hickie looking mark on my inner thigh. I have no idea where it came from and I just noticed it so it has to have only been there a day or 2 at most. It does not itch, hurt, and it has a flat normal skin feeling surface. I just now put a cream I have on it mupirocin 2%. I ve never had anything like this before and no other spots on my body. Thank you

Hello,

As a first line management, you can apply low potency steroid creams like betamethasone for symptomatic relief. If the lesion persists, it is better to consult a dermatologist and get evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I have a lump on my inner right thigh, buried under stretch marks from previous pregnancies, in the area where it joins my hip. There is no head on the lump to suggest that it would be a boil or ingrown hair. It was the size of a peanut yesterday and today is as big as a grape, it is tender to the touch, but is not painful, and it is red in the area. I really dont think it is a boils how can I tell, and what else could it be?

use of mupirocin ointment nasally
I am having I spinal fusion in the morning and was instructed to use mupirocin nasally prior to arrival. the mupirocin I received from the pharmacy is 2% ointment when I read the internal literature it said not to use in the nose but that there are nasal forms of the medicine. I think I tecieved the wrong stuff from the pharmacy that being said. should I still use it or wait and see what the doctor would like to do in the morning?
