I had my first abcess on my coxix when I was 15 yrs old. I had a disrict nurse come in on a daily basis to pack it with gause. Since then I have had more than ten operation to remove these abcesses. At one time I thought I had breast cancer, because I had abcesses under both arms and they were black. I had them both removed and was off work for 5 months, because again they were left open and were packed with gause by the district nurse. I am 35 now and still having the abcesses under both arms, but have them on going in my groin for over ten years. They have been cut out and lanced in the same place but still keep reoccuring. I am glad to find out I'm not the only person in the world suffering from this. The pain is undiscribable at times and I wouldn't wish this condition on anyone. I am currently off work with one in my groin and in my chest. I haven't been diagnosed with Hidradenitis Suppurativa but it sound like the condition I have. The only thing I can do is wash with antibactirial soaps, and use the fudicin cream given by my GP. I would like to hear from anyone else that suffers from this, I know what your going through and it's not pleasant.
