What causes large swelling near pelvic area while having Hidradenitis?

I have a huge lump..bigger than a baseball near my bikini line. Ive had it for over a week and its extremly painful and hurts to walk or sit in certain positions. I have hidradenitis supperativa but have never saw it like this before so im not sure if this is it. I have been applyinf hot compresses as well as every other home remedy all week and tonight a very veru small amount of brown pus came out and smelt so bad it could have knocked someone out. Im not sure if its a carbunkle or the hidradenitis supperativa because i also had a fever which ive never had before with the hidradenitis supperativa.

Hello,
You need to get to a doctor right away. It sounds like you have a large abscess that needs to be drained. If you have a fever it may have gotten into your blood stream and can cause very serious illness. See a doctor today even if it means going to Emergency.
