What's the difference between a groin boil and HS?

I have what looks to be a boil around my groin area. I recently shaved that area before my problem began. This is happening to me for the first time in my life. For the past two days, I awoke to have that thing popped and oozing blood! I also noticed that it ozzed a thick yellowish puss. I don't have boils... show more I have what looks to be a boil around my groin area. I recently shaved that area before my problem began. This is happening to me for the first time in my life. For the past two days, I awoke to have that thing popped and oozing blood! I also noticed that it ozzed a thick yellowish puss. I don't have boils anywhere else around my body except this one- I also don't have any accompanying symptoms. However, it is painful to the point where I am not walking properly! Can someone please explain to me what my problem is?
