I am in stage 3 hidradenitis and I was approved the first time I tried for SS benefits, as well as private disability insurance.  The main key that I have found is documentation.  Even when I didn't need a boil lanced by the doctor, I went in and had them chart it, sometimes take pictures, etc.  It helped a lot.
