When I became pregnant with my first child in 2013, I started getting these boils under my right armpit. So, I went and seen my primary care physician, and he referred me to a dermatologist. The dermatologist said that it was acne, but I knew that was not true. But, I guess being pregnant set off a red flag. They would go away and reappear month after month. After I had my daughter, the nurse practioner referred me back to the same dermatologist after she cultured my wound and stated that it was a staph infection. I went for over a year thinking it was staph. Last week I grew tired of this situation and asked for any alternatives. So, he referred me to a general surgeon whom I see next Wednesday. Hopefully, he will remove my sweat gland or the affected area. It has been three years, and I do not think I can take another month in this pain.
