Why do I have little red itchy bumps on my thighs?

I have already had chicken pox when I was little but I didn't have them very bad, I don't know if it's from shaving or what, but they first came up about a week ago when I was wearing jean shorts that got wet and then dried while I was wearing them, I don't know if that has anything to do with it but Please answer! Thanks!

Your wet jeans probably rubbed against your legs while they were wet and caused chaffing or an irritation. If you had just shaved that might have added to the problem...

No they're smaller then that and there's to many of them to be mosquito bites

it can be bed bugs which you can't see with a naked eye so just wash your sheets or shake them before you go to sleep

they might be chiggers. they are little bugs that when you are outside they go into your skin. they are by trees and woods and places like that. if you are itching then they are already gone,and clear nail polish should do the trick. hope this helps.

I'd say that it's from shaving. Sometimes after I have my legs I get little red bumps and they itch like crazy but they are just razor bumps. So that might be what they are.

Shaving, heat rash.

Chiggers or bed bugs usually appear in a line. If they are kind of all over, my guess would be either a contact dermatitis (basically a mild irritation or slight allergic reaction) or reaction from the wet shorts and shaving. Hydrocortisone cream will help with the itching. Don't shave that area for a few days and use lotions with no perfumes if your skin is dry. If it doesn't go away soon or gets worse in any way, call your doc. If its not intensely itchy or painful, I doubt it's anything to worry about.
