What are these painful, red things on my thighs and butt. HELP!!!
Patient : I have had red bumps that look like what an infected ingrown hair would be. At first I had multiple ones on my butt that were very painful. Now I get them every couple months on my upper thigh.(one at a time usaully)They have a head on them and if I lance it a can push some puss out. They last about ten days. When it heals it leaves a scar. They are very painful at times. It was diagnost as shingles once but I dont think so. I am a 51 yr. old male. Lab work was done and its not a staph infection. Now my 14yr old daughter has one and the Dr. says probably shinngles. Any ideas?
