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.

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.

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.

Surgery For Underarms For Hs
A myHSteam Member asked a question πŸ’­

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. They told me this surgery consists of taking off the skin in my armpit and removing all of my sweat glands and possibly my lymph nodes as well. Does anyone know of possibly anything else… read more

How Do You Treat HS From The Inside If My Abscesses No Longer Rupture On The Surface?
A myHSteam Member asked a question πŸ’­

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.
