for a while now, i've been getting "acne" on my butt. it started worrying me when i also got it in my right armpit. i did some research and found out about hs, and panicked a bit once i read more about it.
i went to see my doctor, and he insisted that i didn't have hs. however, i'm not sure why i'm getting pimples in these weird locations. they're small, don't drain, and go away within a day or two, but they always come back , and are in the areas that hs shows up in. they also aren't due to shaving, sometimes i'll stop shaving for a while to see if it helps but it doesn't. benzoyl peroxide seems to help them somehow.
i feel like i need someone who actually has hs to help me be able to tell whether i could have it or not. it's causing me lots of anxiety...i'm scared that one day i'll see a huge boil instead of a little pimple on my armpit or butt.
