What causes red blisters in inner thighs?

On my inner thighs, close to the groin area, i have what appear to be small round, sore like, spots. When they first arrived, there were also some pus filled, tiny blisters. Two days after that, they are just sort of bug bite looking red spots. I have tried treating them, myself, since today is holiday here, with both vinagar as an antiseptic, triple antibiotic cream as well as an anti fungal cream. Honestly , I think it might be fungal. When walking around today, i was aware that there was some sensitivity in the area where they are. Any thoughts?

as you have mentioned very few symptoms related to the disease as associated itching, pain, fever, extra , so, it is very difficult to say about the causes exactly. But, it can be due to any bacterial infection like staphyloccal/ streptococcal, yeast like fungal infection by candida, and viral infection by Herpes virus all of which are more common in diabetes, so, go for Blood glucose estimation. other causes include- allergic reaction, Angiomas are benign condition containing small blood vessels or lymphatic vessels, acanthosis nigricans which signifies some internal malignancy. So, consult a dermatologist for further diagnosis and treatment. Clean the area properly with mild soap with moisturizer.
