You had inflamed hair follicle on your thigh, its called foliculitis. Foliculitis can happen on almost any part of your skin because the whole skin is covered with tiny pores which can get inflamed. Pores are just the top part of hair follicle, most of it is below skin and when it’s infected or irritated it swells up and fills with pus. Folliculitis often clears up without any treatment, but sometimes it can cause a large swollen bump filled with pus to pop up and that can be painful. Most of these bumps clear by themselves, or as you have described and all most of them needs is a warm, moist washcloth applied on the affected area to relieve discomfort and help the area drain. But if this problem becomes more often and bumps start to leave scars, they must be treated with some topical cream that has antibiotics in it.
