Hidradenitis is a chronic inflammation of the apocrine glands, a type of sweat gland found on certain parts of the body. One or more red, tender swellings (lesions) may appear and fill with pus, typically in the areas of the groin, armpits or buttocks. The lesions enlarge and often open and drain on their own. Sometimes, a doctor needs to drain them. Scarring may result. Multiple blackheads (comedones) also are present in the affected areas.
