Suffering From Golf Ball Sized Boils on Groin From Hidradenitis Suppurativa

Hi, my name is Sarah. I was just recently diagnosed with HS. But I have been sufferings with it since I was 17 and I am now 26. I get them on my labia. My flair ups are frequent, they either come every month or every over month. And they are usually the size of a golf balls. They get so bad that I have been hospitalized a few times. A couple because they where so big that they had to put me under just to drain them. And other times because the infection would spread through my leg causing a severe burning sensation. I have been put on every antibiotic for, I have any stopped my period thinking that would help. But nothing works. And I have talked to a few doctors and they pretty much told me that having surgey and anything else will pointless. HS has literally messed up my life, I can't work and it affects time with my kids. I guess I am wondering is there any hope.
