Does anyone else get what looks like a big blackhead under the skin where a boil used to be? I get ones that look like a little tunnel...and the tunnel is filled with blackhead goo.
I’ve tried to treat them like blackheads, but it hasn’t really worked. My HS meds (Metformin) work for my boils, but not these. Pic is from a dermatology website, but this is what they look like.
I recently had an outbreak that lasted all of 2020 and some of this year. It is just now clearing up. I have scars that are quite embarrassing. I want to clear them up before summer so I can feel comfortable in a bathing suit. Any suggests would be greatly appreciated. I posted a picture of just one example of a scar I’m dealing with.
I have been prescribed Humira for my HS because nothing else I’ve tried has worked. I just wanted to hear real experiences from real people and not just my doctor.
Most things for me never work (antibiotics, anti inflammatory meds etc) any recommendations specifically for boils that never heal and constantly drain ??
Any flare-ups, fatigue, inflammation...
I feel silly asking this, but every now and again, I will get a painful and large cystic bump behind an ear... seems similar to a typical, minor HS boil. Does anyone know if this is considered HS or something else?
I’ve had HS symptoms for about a year but was diagnosed about 6 months ago. I’ve noticed that every time I have a flare I feel run down, my body hurts, and I just want to sleep. Does anybody else experience this?
I’ve tried emuaid , all it does it make a worse smell ? I’ve used this natural tea tree deodorants , what do you’ll use ??
