Hi doctor,

I have some red bumps on my thighs and butt for the last couple of years. It is present on the sides of the thighs and back of the butt. It is not painful or itchy. I thought of it as razor burn and tried to use different razors and creams. But nothing helped me. I also have them on my inner thighs too. On my butt, I seem to have acne too. I do not know what to do. They really show up when I shave them. They show up right on my underwear line and sometimes, it causes pain. I have not taken any treatment for it. How to get rid of them? How to get smooth skin?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You have keratosis pilaris. They cause tiny bumps on the sites of hair follicles or just next to the hair follicles and they get irritated easily by shaving. Medications containing Lactic acid tend to work well by unplugging the pores and it reduces the bumps. It restores smooth skin to some degree. You can use Amlactin lotion. Use them after taking shower. It has moisturizing properties. It may sting a little bit when you start using them but it will become better with time.
