What causes pimples on the inner thigh?

my four year old daughter keeps getting pimples on her inner thigh and because they are very tender she won t let me pop them. She has a history of molluscum bumps but these are what I would consider a pimple. What causes these and what can I do to prevent them.

Hi, this appears to be pyoderma, you should give a proper antibiotic course of 5 to 7 days like amoxyclav and apply mupirocin cream at the lesions. Once they are completely healed then chances of recurrence are rare. In children, all drugs are given according to weight so i advice you to revert back with exact weight of child. Take care.
