I am 24yrs old and suffer with a underactive thyroid and polycystic ovaries. For a few years on and off I have been getting small painful lumps just around the groin, inside leg and bum area I have not had it consistent they just seem to come and go I thought these might be due to chaffing. I recently had a bad viral infection and noticed a lump under my armpit I left it a few days and it turned into loads of painful lumps under both arms so I went to the GP who gave me antibiotics and has since cleared up although there is still one tiny lump under my arm. The GP said that this may have been a result of Hidradentis, since then I have not been back as the painful lumps have cleared this was about a month ago but now again I have got a few lumps around the groin area. I was wondering if anyone has had similar symptoms to me as they come and go on there own and sometimes I do not have anything there sometime they are painful but sometimes not it depends on the area and I don't think I have any scar tissue and they have never pussed.
