Folliculitis on thighs

I just wanted to share something which surprised me and thought it might be useful info for other people. I frequently get big bumps on my inner thighs right at the top, which I've always just put down to chafing. They can be very sore but I didn't think I could do much about it. I had to go to the doctor for another issue and I mentioned them, in case there was something else going on (every so often I get anxious that the bumps are related to something else like an undiagnosed STI). The doctor diagnosed folliculitis (infection of the hair follicle) and prescribed antibiotics. I've been taking them for two days, with another five days to go. I'm looking forward to an improvement!
