Does Anyone Have Issues With Cysts Due To Their HS?

Does Anyone Have Issues With Cysts Due To Their HS?

Since being diagnosed with HS I have become prone to cysts in different areas that have required surgery to remove. Has anyone else had anything like this happen and what have you found helps?

I had them so bad in both my armpits at the same time , they were the size of baseballs and I was using a pillow under each arm to work at a cash register. I had so much scar tissue at 1 point that I went to the e.r. to get them lanced, they couldn't even reach the areas infected that they scheduled me an appt with a surgeon the next couple of days and had them removed . Omg it was hell!!

Hi, I had surgery in both armpits and my groin. It was absolutely horrible but changed my life. They only missed one cyst which has now been done. I take an oral antibiotic every day now which helps. Good luck if you decide to have surgery x
