Hi Nancy, Clare-maree is right. Please have them checked. My son had an abscess/boil they're all related to staph. My 18mo old son's bumps were MRSA a.k.a. the "Superbug" which is a staph infection that's resistant to antibiotics. For three months we fought this and he had to have one of the bumps surgically drained. No fun. So it won't hurt to get the doctor to check it out. They could just be begin ole boils that some people are just genetically susceptible to. Good luck.

Hi Nancy, Have you had these checked out? Is it possible that they are something else? Are they only appearing on her inner thighs? I don't mean to scare you but i've seen children with sores like these before and they were actually an STI contracted from birth that had been dormant for years. I definitly think you should have a doctor look at them.
