Hello everyone, my name is Sue. I have only been dealing with HS since November2012. As you can imagine I have many questions. The Dr.s seem to be clueless to put it mildley. I only have it under my left armpit. I get a"boil" about the size of a dime and it becomes very sore red and hot. Then about two weeks its drains heals and leaves a horrific scar. I get them about every two weeks. My last one was much bigger. About the size of a half dollar. It became much more painful then my other. It finally started draining last night. I am looking for any advice or help learning about this awful painful disease. Thank you in advance for all the help.
