Im looking for answers to a few questions I have. I've been getting boils/nodules in my buttock/groin area that would sometimes break open and sometimes just disappear since I was around 12. They left scares which are still there to this day.
Around 15-16, I started getting 1-2 boils/nodules in my armpits that would sometimes burst open and sometimes just go away.
2 1/2 years ago, during a very hot day in May (i mention hot because i SWEAT A LOT) after shaving, I got multiple boils/nodules under both armpits. They were very red, painful, tender to the touch. Some of them broke open and released some fluids, some of them went away on their own after a week or so after I got put on antibiotics.
The doctor diagnosed it with HS. She said that she had the same thing when she was younger and what I was experiencing was a "flare".
I have never met anyone who experienced something like this, or even heard of HS so I am looking for if someone has ever experienced this?
