Does anyone know what/how to get rid of pimples between legs? It would be the area where my legs rub together. They also scar.

try using baby powder or even diaper rash cream. most of the time they pop up because of the friction cause by walking or running combined with sweating. sometimes it is a result of shaving and ingrown hairs occurring.

Usually these little pimples are caused by inflammed hair follicles. At night take a bath in water that is not too hot as so it doesn't irritate your skin. After bathing pat the area dry (don't rub) and apply triple antibiotic ointment. (if you are allergic to antibiotics ask the pharmacist if you should use the ointment) In the morning wash the area with mild soap and water and again pat dry. Apply gold bond or other medicated powder. Until the bumps are gone, don't wear jeans or shave that area. Wear clothes that are loose fitting and soft. If you must wear jeans you might try wearing cotton shorts under your jeans (such as boxers) that cover the area--and also make sure the jeans are not tight.
The key points. Decrease irritation and friction. Keep clean and dry. If it doesn't start to improve in a few days or the bumps worsen I recommend seeing your Dr. And avoid the other advice--don't pop them, this could cause them to get worse.
