    first of all some quick info. Been working out for 7 weeks now. I'm 5'9" and started at 216. I am now sitting at 204, good progress I think and I'd like to thank you guys for all the great help and info in F&N.

    But I noticed that I'm developing small pimples on my thighs and ass.... It's not a crazy amount or anything disgusting but they're there. I just wanted to know if anybody else experienced this.

    And I'm not taking ANYTHING aside from whey.

    Because you touch yourself at night.

    But seriously, do you shower every day? Are you a naturally oily guy? How old are you?

    I'm 28, don't have an acne problem at all and I shower as soon as i get home from the gym as well as every morning before i go to work. And I'm not naturally oily, actually the opposite, i often have dry skin.

    Try sitting in the sauna and relieve your pores?

    its from the swass. . start shaving your ass. it will work. oR get another towel and wipe yourself off when u start sweating like a pig =p

    Look up Keratosis Pilaris. They may not be pimples just clogged pores due to your skins inability to exfoliate itself. Find some images of it and I'm sure you'll know if it's it once seeing it. If they are pimples, then I dunno.

    Could be ingrown hairs or apocrine glands (sweat glands). More likely the latter.

    i had the same issue. were they kinda pink/red ish and looked like a mini circle lump on your skin? mine came from my sweating and i showered after every workout session as well. what i did was grabbed some baby powder and pat some underneath my sac, around the inner/upper thighs and close to the ass hole.

    I get them too. It's because I sweat all the damn time.
