Hi--
Do any of you get these tiny acne size moley warty things on the insides of your thighs or legs or neck area? I know some on my neck are skin tags, but the ones on my legs just appeared and while they do not spread they are troublesome when shaving. I've never had warts so I don't think that's what they are, but they are little bumps like warts, sort of flat on top like you want to scrape them off. Mine are not red or anything.
Love, Marji

I have one on the lower half of my right leg on the side. I do not know what it is, either. I have yet to ask my doctor what it is. I just moved to a new state, so I don't even see my new rheumy until August. I hope someone else here knows what it is.

mygrljes--
Is it on the inside of your leg? Mine are about four to six inches above my knees, one on each side toward the inside of my thigh.
 
For years I thought they were ingrown hairs, docs said moles, but they are different. They seem to come and go with changes in my disease.

I have something just like that on my thigh too. It's been there for quite a long time now (no idea how long, though). It's sort of on the top of the inner thigh. I wonder what it is! There are some other things there recently, but they are more sore-like, and I figure they are ingrown hairs from shaving. But the other one, like you said, is different. It's more wart-like in appearance, but at the same time seems different than a wart. I've never asked a doctor about it.

Marji,

It is on the outside of my leg, halfway between my knee and ankle. I thought it was a wart at first, but it doesn't have the cauliflower head like a wart does.

The dermatologist said it was just excess tissue while the rheumie seemed more interested. It's weird how it appears on the thigh! Wow, more people have it than I thought. It does have a cauliflower head if you look closely, but now mine are small. Flattish too.
Love, Marji

I noticed I have one too.. but are they white.. like skin colorish or are yours brown? I also have one on my hand.. I brought it up to my rhuemy and she said not to worry about it. My mom is going to take me to Dermatoligist though to check it out.

No, mine are skin colored too and if you pick at them sometimes there's deadish skin on top. I took some off with wart remover, but they came back and I had to do it a bunch of times and now they are back again after a few years of being gone. I thought it might be a discoid type thing.

I have a few myself but they are dark pink. I am planning to ask for them to be removed. My family has a history of skin cancer and I had a bunch of moles removed almost 10 years ago and am going to have the weird ones on my thighs removed along with the last of the other moles I have. For some reason they all got bigger and the color changed slightly during my pregnancy but they have not returned to how they were before. I figure better safe than sorry.

Mine are like Marji's, skin color and the top can be scraped off like dead skin sometimes. After I scrape them, they are dark pink underneath, like the color of new skin.

I have one like redrose describe on my calf, it is different and pink and rounder. It has gotten larger. I asked the derm to remove it and he said he could if it caused problems. I just haven't pursued it lately.  I also have different types of bumps on my eyelids and different things yet on my belly--they look almost like a small bite with a black center. They look more like some pictures of a discoid type rash, but I wondered if the thigh things wouldn't be discoid like too?  I don't know what discoid or other lupus rashes look like. I went to a dermatology database site and there are millions of pictures of all different skin conditions. I didn't think our skin could get so messed up!
