I've probably had HS for 7 yrs, but was diagnosed a yr ago. This disease is very debilitating. I have about 5 boils and an abcess on my groin/vaginal area, one on the under-carriage of my butt, & a few under each armpit. This is the worse its ever been. It hurts to walk, lay down, & other everyday things. I just want to get a knife & cut them all out. I've had the surgery in one spot and it stopped the infection but not the swelling. This pain is cronic. :'(

Just be careful with having any of them cut open.. Often times you will get secondary infections which will lead to more problems..
