I've been getting big itchy bumps on the back of my thighs when I sit for awhile and also when I get up in the morning I have them. They itch like crazy and hurt when I press on them. They look like bug bites but I've checked all over and have no bugs that I can see.
Any suggestions?

  • Do they form little blisters and then drain?

  • No, they aren't like blisters and they don't drain. They just hurt and itch. They come and go too. Does it sound like hives? I don't know why I keep getting them on the back of my thigh.

  • It could be a soap allergy, bug bites or possibly herpes (they look like little mosquito bites on your legs or butt). Change your soap and see if that helps, if not, get a blood test for herpes and then allergy tested..
