Recurring purple blood filled raised and irritated place on inner thigh. Cause and preventive measures?

Hi, I have a purple blood filled place on my upper inner thigh. It is raised and feels very irritated when I walk and my clothing rubs against it. I pricked it with a needle and blood came out and then liquid and it still feels sore and irritated. I have had several of these for a few years now on each inner thigh and they are very painful when they swell up or whatever they do, any idea what I can do to get rid of them or what is causing them? Thanks, p.

Hi Carlos,
Thanks for writing in.
It can be intertrigo ,friction dermatitis ,friction blisters.

You can apply calamine lotion over the area.Also analgesic like paracetamol would be helpful.
Also you can take tablet zyrtec for itching and irritation.
Use soft cotton clothing.
Keep the area clean and dry.
I encourage you to visit a qualified dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Hope this helps.
