I'm 16 years old, I've had these reaccuring boils since I was probably 11 or so. I've always been scared to show anyone because it embarrassing, you know? They've gotten so much worse, I have scarring all in my inner thigh and it's terrible, I now have some on my armpits and they hurt the worst. I also have them on my buttock area. This has made me so self conscious, I feel like I don't relate to anyone, I was recently googling my symptoms and come to the conclusion it is HS. I still have never been to the doctor or told my parents about any of this. We have the worse doctors around here so anything I come in about my doctor tell me to loose weight(bc I am overweight) and I'll be cured. I'm just nervous I'll be misdiagnosed or I'll be really embarrassed to even go because they might question why I waited so long to tell them. Everyone is so supportive here so I decided to comment
