Leg acne?

For about a year (since the birth of my second), I have had red bumps all over my legs. Everyone says it looks like razor rash, but they are also on my upper thighs where I do not shave. I got this after my first child too but it eventually went away. I don't want to use harsh creams and treat it as acne. And I don't have health insurance to see a dermatologist. And TMI, some I can pop like a pimple, so it is obviously some kind of bacterial infection or something. Anyone have this? Suggestions? Thanks!

  • Do you have really thick hair? Maybe it's ingrown hairs? I know people with thicker hair get them often.

  • I agree with ReneeK3. It might be in grown hairs which looks like acne.

  • you could be allergic to your fabric softner or soap, or a cleaner used on the couch, or the fabric you wear. Ask yourself what changed after you had the baby.'s

  • maybe get one of those body buff things and try an hypoallergenic soap.
