I have been experiencing these symptoms for close to 9 years. I have sought medial advice on several occasions to only be told the usual.

It's might be folliculitis..
You need to lose weight(i am 175lbs, && 5ft 5in)
Maybe your not clean enough..(I shower every day religously)
try wearing looser clothing...

I have taken all this advice.
Even if i felt it was slightly off base and applied it to my life.

Now, in the past couple years i have NOT seen a doctor for this problem due to embaressment...

I have developed several 1/2 dollar size(somtimes larger) absesses which are incrediblly painful in the pubic reigon, under my armpits, & breasts... They leave horrific scars and there are also cyst like lumps under the skin in both area's...

Also some of these abscesses will drain but unfortunatelly WILL NOT HEAL!

Now, i am left with these holes in my skin that drain, giant absesses, and huge hard lumps that don't go away...

I am soo self concious that i cannot date
I cannot go swimming with friends..
I can't even get dressed when shopping in stores
because people try to say that i have herpes (which i am 100% sure i don't)
I had them swabbed and tested..

It has become soo emotionally painful
that i have considered suicide...
&& i am only 22 years old... I need help!!!!

please somone =[

I will send pictures if nessissary....
