In brief: Check with surgeon

Hidradenitis is an enormously frustrating problem when overenthusiastic glandular tissue in the armpits and groin continually recurrs.
As patients no doubt rapidly discover it can be a very frustrating experience to treat and there is no perfect cure. If there are only a few small areas of recurrance left, checking with surgeon to see if they can be removed might still be appropriate.
