Hidradenitis suppurativa is a chronic condition with a tendency to recur. Antibiotics will control the infection but surgery is the cure. Some lifestyle changes like weight control, cessation of smoking and improved hygiene would reduce the recurrences. Consult a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis and for proper treatment.
