Hi, I woke up to this red bump that looks similar to an insect's bite. It got bigger and more painful as the day passed. It's located at the underside of my thigh. It hurts when I sit on it. I'm not sure if this is an insect's bite or some kind of skin problem? I was intending to apply some tetracycline hydrochloride my doctor used to prescribe to me for my pimples. Please advise me on what to do, thank you.

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (1)

Dear Yuwen,

Thank you for the question. It is unusual to get a large pimple at this location. If it is red and painful, an insect bite is possible but an underlying infection or infected cyst is also possible.

If the pain is still present, you should see your doctor or dermatologist to get this checked out.  If there is an underlying infection , this should be treated early to prevent it from spreading.
