I am 22 years old, im a mother, i am 17st and i am 5ft4.. For the past 3 years i have been getting huge spots, (the size of a milk bottle lid) they are on the top (inside) of my legs.. i went to a doctor and she told me to squeeze them and told me to keep them clean.. these spots are too painful to squeeze and pop, so i manage to pierce them and squeeze them that way.. all i get out of these spots are a huge amounts of blood but i dont get any puss out of these spots. what are they and are they anything to worry about ?

Welcome to HealthcareMagic. It can be due to boils or cysts. Apply warm compresses and some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. You can also apply topical antibiotic creams. However if the symptoms persist then oral antibiotics may be needed. You have to consult your dermatologist then.

Hope it helps you. Regards.
