I have a skin condition known as hidradenitis suppurativa. It's a severe form of acne; I get these huge ugly pus filled bumps on my armpits.
My doctor told me that there is no cure and I can only do what I've been doing to lessen the symptoms. I've had this problem for almost two years; the bumps just fade and then they reappear more painful than ever. I don't shave or use deodorant anymore. Despite washing twice daily, I smell. It embarrassed me that a complete stranger tried to educate me about body odor and deodorant.
I wear baggy clothing in an attempt to avoid the bumps. I'm to embarrassed to tell people that when they comment that I look like a hobo.
I'm not overweight to the point where my skin rubbing together is a potential cause. I have no clue why they keep returning.
If this is permanent I don't want to live; I don't think I've ever been more sad. Does that make me superficial?
I don't know what else to do.
