Hello Doctor 


Why am I getting blisters on my inner thighs even though I haven't had sex? Is this a common problem, and what could be causing it?




Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


Blisters appearing on the inner thighs without engaging in sexual activity could stem from various sources. Friction from tight clothing or repetitive movement, allergic reactions to detergents or fabrics, fungal infections like jock itch, heat rash due to hot weather, or folliculitis, an inflammation of hair follicles, could all contribute to this issue. However, providing tailored advice is challenging without further details. For a comprehensive evaluation and personalized treatment recommendations, it's crucial to consult a healthcare professional who can examine the blisters and determine the underlying cause accurately.
