Your symptoms are suggestive of hidradentis suppurativa. Hidradenitis suppurativa is rare, long-term skin condition that features small, painful lumps under the skin. Hidradenitis suppurativa commonly occurs around hair follicles with many oil and sweat glands, such as in the armpits, groin and anal area. It may also occur where skin rubs together, such as the inner thighs, under the breasts and between the buttocks. Hidradenitis suppurativa develops when hair follicles become blocked and inflamed. No one knows exactly why this blockage occurs. Factors that may play a role include hormones, metabolic syndrome, genetics, an irregular immune system response, smoking and excess weight. There is no cure for hidradenitis suppurativa. But early and long-term treatment may help control pain, promote wound healing, keep new lumps from forming and prevent complications. These following steps may help: - Follow a daily skin-care routine. Gently wash your body with a nonsoap cleanser - Manage your pain. Gently applying a wet, warm washcloth, teabag or other sort of compress can help reduce swelling and ease pain. Keep it on for about 10 minutes. - Avoid tight clothes and irritating products. Wear loose, lightweight clothes to reduce friction. Some women find that using tampons rather than sanitary pads causes less friction with the skin. Use detergents and other products that are free of perfumes, dyes and enzymes. - Avoid injuring the skin. For example, don't squeeze the pimples and sores. And stop shaving affected skin. - Keep a healthy weight and stay active. Not being at a healthy weight can make symptoms worse. Try to find activities that don't irritate your skin. - Avoid all tobacco products. If you smoke, try to quit. Smoking and other tobacco use may play a role in making hidradenitis suppurativa worse. If the problem persists or worsens visit the gynecologist at the earliest

A high BMI, skin irritation, tight clothing, some deodorants and certain drugs may trigger an episode of hidradenitis suppurativa.Consult gynaecologist..
