my daughter has now had 2 breakouts of mysterious pimples on back of her thighs. Very painful. ER doc. last yr. said he didn't know what it was or the cause. Antibiotics and time eliminated them. Now they are back and going back to ER because of the pain. She popped one, said there was puss, blood then watery fluid. Why the pain unless it's like shingles or herpes. She has no known desease.

Hello, the most likely condition your daughter has is inflammation of hair follicles which presents itself as painful pimple pustule, sometimes with white tip, and, since you say that antibiotics and time eliminated this condition – although is rather strange that ER doctor hadn’t realized this, fairly common and treatable condition that every woman had experienced at one point – as a simple case of ingrown hair. Stenght of pain depends on the severity of inflammation and varies acros body. These infections are caused mainly by the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus, and these bacteria are easily contracted in water in whirlpools and hot tubs. This bacterium may also be passed in wet suits. Does your daughter swim or has a long contact with water?
