Radiologist Dr. Radha Narayanan's  Response
Hi!
thanks for choosing healthcaremagic. .This condition occurs when apocrine gland outlets become blocked by perspiration or are unable to drain normally because of incomplete gland development. Secretions trapped in the glands force perspiration and bacteria into surrounding tissue, causing subcutaneous induration, inflammation, and infection. Apocrine glands occur in axilla(arm pit), groins, perianal,periumbilical,perineal regions.Treatment depends on which stage , degree to which the disease has affected the area, and on how painful the sores are. oral antibiotics,pain killers are given in early stage,Sometimes laser ablation is also done.Surgery is reserved for larger lesions,scarring etc..Please visit a general surgeon in your city.

WHATS THE BEST HOME TREATMENT FOR HIDRNITIS SUPPURTIVA? iVE HAD IT BEFORE AND MY DOCTOR CUT AND DRAINED IT, THEN PUT SOME TYPE OF TAPE INSIDE THE GLAND TO PREVENT RECURING INFECTION. ITS BEEN A FEW MONTHS AGO THIS WAS DONE., ONE BUMP UNDER LEFT ARM, TWO BUMPS UNDER RIGHT ARM... iVE BEEN USEING WARM DAMP HAND TOWELS AND WASHING WITH HIBACLENS BUT NOT WORKING VERY WELL. WHAT ELSE CAN I TRY, ORSHOULD I JUST RETURN TO THE DOCTOR TO DRAIN IT AGAIN? PLEASE ADVISE... cj

Hi, I m 20 yrs ol. I have suffered from hidradenitis suppurativa since puberty. Although doctors have seen some lesions on my thigh and stomach area they dismissed it without really giving me a cause. I was never able to bring myself to tell them that these boil like things were also on my buttocks, groin, underarms and breasts. I ve lost weight recently (about 30lbs) and while I don t get the huge extremely painful ones under my arms anymore I still have them everywhere else. I take antibiotics for acne but they have done little for these lesions.... Is there something that I can do... this affects my everyday life... I am extremely embarrassed to tell a doctor.
