Hi folks. I have had HS for around 15 years but have just had a new experience with it which has me confused and I wonder if anyone could clarify it please.
Around 5 months ago I got a big squishy lump by my shoulder blades which I think was a cyst. Anyway I ignored it but around 10 days ago it became infected overnight.
I went to the doctor who gave me ab's Erythromycin which I took for 2 days but made me feel sick. So I changed to doxyclycline which usually clears them. It hasn't.
It has gone down by about 3/4 but it is still infected and painful with lots of impacted matter still there.
My questions are: It is a very unusual place to have one for me, I have never had a cyst go bad before, and is the only option now to lance it? Will the surgery be able to do it?
Thanks. Bev x
