In brief: General or Plastic
General and plastic surgeons deal with disorders of the apocrine glands in the skin.
This is most commonly known as hidradenitis. Dermatologists often manage hidradenitis in the early stages but surgeons need to remove the affected skin and glands at later stages. Seek a general or plastic surgeon and be patient as the process may involve several surgeries for complete healing.
