Will this ever stop.
Dermatologist: Dr. Muneeb Ali, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Actually, this looks like one of two things. The first thing which comes to mind is that you have developed a severe bacterial infection of the hair follicles in the area. This is known as folliculitis. This would be treated with drainage of the pus and then you would be started on antibiotics for a period of 7-14 days. If this is folliculitis then this will stop after the proper treatment. A blood culture and culture of the pus would also be required here.

The other possibility is that of hidradenitis suppurativa. This is a condition in which the glands under the skin become infected repeatedly and cause these sort of pus-like areas to form. This would lead to repeated episodes of this problem occurring in the groin region, the buttocks, the armpits. Now, this is diagnosed with the help of a simple clinical examination and an ultrasound as well. Once diagnosed it would be treated with antibiotics for a period of 2-3 weeks along with surgery to remove the glands altogether. This would cause the problem to subside for a few years before it may recur again. However, in many cases, surgery would cause it to disappear completely. Another form of treatment can be with lasers as well as other dermatological treatments.

As far as your question about it stopping is concerned, YES it will depending on the treatment that you get and the actual diagnosis. That is why I would strongly suggest that you have this evaluated as soon as possible.
