Hidradenitis Suppurative vs CD-related abscess/fistula?

Hello,

Are there any differences between Hidradenitis Suppurative and Crohn's-related abscesses/fistula?

I had one episode of an anal abscess. High night fever. Got it drained at the Emergency Room. Later, it returned as fistula that leaks puss often. My rectum (inside) also hurts.

At least -- that's what my GP told me. She said my case is probably related to a possible IBD.

But then my aunt told me that it was probably Hidradenitis Suppurative. Now I start to doubt everything I know.

Are there any differences? I think HD never requires emergency hospitalization for drainage, nor does it probably cause internal pain.

But I could be wrong about that so I'd like some advice!
