I would actually see a dermatologist next.
From your description, it sounds like you have hidradenitis suppurativa (in case you didn't know).
This is a chronic skin condition that unfortunately has no cure but can be managed.
The things that you can do are the following:
Don't shave (I know this is difficult for a woman)
Use gentle antibacterial soaps and don't use washcloths. Use hands only.
Wear loose fitting clothing
Try to lose weight if you are heavy
Zinc gluconate tablets may also be helpful (50 mg per day)
Medical treatment, if the above are not working, includes the following
Steroid injections into the lesions when they develop
Oral antibiotics MAY help
Surgical removal of extensive disease

Feel free to ask any follow up questions and I will be happy to discuss them with you,
