I just found out what HS is and I'm very concerned that I might have it. Though I have the symptoms I just really don't want to have to deal with something like this for the rest of my life. I got my first abscess under my arm a while ago when I was maybe 15 and never had a problem until last year. I have one that I had since maybe Feburary and it's not fully healed. It doesn't hurt unless I press on it hard and it's just not sealed. I figured it was just an ingrown hair that never got released I guess. The last one I got was in May, it was huge and took a long time to heal. My doctor said it was just a boil and it'll drain itself and it did but it took about a month for it to fully heal but it's scarred. Now I feel two abscess near each other. I don't know if this is HS or maybe I should really just stop shaving. If this is HS can I just continue what I usually do and let them pop on their own or should I go consult a doctor? I don't know if HS gets worse if you don't see a doctor cuz for all the treatments listed for HS it's just treated like a normal cyst would be.
