Thanks for the query.
Probably you have developed hidradenitis suppurativa.
It is an autoimmune disorder.
Surgery is one of the modality however it can be treated with the use of medicines.
You can use acitretin tablet in consultation with your doctor.
An intermittent course of antibiotics would also be helpful.
Hope this helps you.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
