See Doctor: See your doctor. Some people have chronic conditions called hidradenitis supurativa that requires antibiotics and changes in personal hygiene approaches. This condition is more of a nuisance, but can cause large abscesses. Persistent lymph node enlargement can also be the sign of something more serious. See doctor soon.
