Hidradenitis is infection in the sweat glands, but one can also get infection in the hair follicles - best would be to let your doctor have a look to see which of the two it is. Hidradenitis may need removal of the sweatglands, while folliculitis can be treated with topical antibiotics like Bactroban ointment
