    hi im sorry to hear of what you are facing it must be really difficult. i used to get similar things on the inside of my thighs and i was diagnosed with hidradenitis suppurativa. please look into this condition and speak to a dermatologist, it may be that you have this too. the characteristic of this autoimmune disease is that the bump replicates on the opposite side eventually so please look out for that. all the best
