Hi All,

I have a skin condition called hidradenitis suppurativa. I had 3 abcesses come up in my groin that were the size of a fist and had 6 operations within a few months. I was clear around 3years and was told that I had reoccurring abscesses. Jan 2012 I have a another large abcess come up and had another 10 or more. This resulted in a further 3 operations. I finally was told that I did infact have hidradenitis suppurativa. Recently I have a smaller abcess that keeps on coming up and leaking then going down and coming back up. I am also experiencing severe pain in my groin. its like a hot poker and it is constant and radiates down my thigh. I have also bumps under the skin that are very small but painful and hot to touch. I dont have any abcess now just this pain. Has anyone every experienced this before and can give me any information. I'd really appreciate it.
