Greetings. You'll need oral antibiotics and probably even retinoids. You must definitely lose weight if you are obese. You must be suffering from hidradenitis suppurativa. This will require regular treatment and follow up and medicines cannot be prescribed online. If you cannot afford consultation you could see a dermatologist in one of the medical colleges or government hospitals where treatment is free or not very expensive. Warm regards.
