My go-to are icepacks when I'm feeling a bad itch! Also be mindful if the itch is a reaction to something you're allergic to or stress or any of your known triggers.
Some people believe that HS is contagious skin disease or think it's some form of STD , so what information would you like to give to people about HS and about living with HS?
What are best soaps to use? Shampoos, conditioners, body washes that felt best to you.
I've started using Dr. Bronner's tea tree castile soap recently, I use the bar form, and it seems to help. Also have hibiclens for when I have an open lesion.
Does anyone have extremely bad dandruff? I have really bad dandruff, like it snows when I scratch my head. If you do what do you use or what do you do to help with that?
Thank you I have olive oil in the house I will give it a try with my scalp scrubber

The Doctor should know it's painful just by looking at the wound. If they appear to think it's nothing, get another Doctor, a knowledgeable Dermatologist.
Hey guys! I'm brand new to treatments for hs, I've had it for years but didn't know what it was until I got a large lump under my armpit, I had to go to the ER because the pain was so bad. They told me to fix it I would need to have surgery, they told me it was tunneled into my armpit and around my lymph nodes.

I was using dove but started using hibiclens, I use secret deodorant.
I am not attending anything but did post HS awareness week on my church bulletin board. If I find anything on line I will probably watch.
After 7 surgeries on my armpits and breasts removing sweat glands and tunnels created by the HS I have continued to get abscesses. The only problem is with so much scar tissue the boils are too deep under my skin to rupture and drain. So I smell the pus inside my body when I have outbreaks. I smell it when I breathe, in my urine even when I sweat in my head. It's made life awful.
Now you have to do it twice a day.
