I've been suffering with HS for 6 months, with regular flare-ups in my left armpit, 1 in my right armpit and 1 down below. 2 Days ago a boil started to form at the top of my back, almost on the inside of my shoulderblade area, near the spine. Could this be HS related? It certainly feels the same, the pain is immense and consistent, and it now measures about the width of a baseball. It's in a really difficult place to try to treat - I've even had the hairdryer on it today to get heat to the area to try to bring it to a head, and can just about reach with my fingers to dab some germoline on it, but don't know what I'm going to do when it does come to a head because I can't reach it to pop it. I'm really body conscious, and don't want to go to the doctors unless I absolutely have to.
Has anyone else suffered with one here, and if so, any advice on self-treatment?
