I just got diagnosed but have suspected I have hs for a while. My problem area is my groin. I've picked at any bumps that occur which means I have some open wounds. I don't have the Typical puss, but just lots of red angry skin that's open. Lots of blood/fluid initially came out but is stable now. I'm on oral minocycline and clindamycin ointment. This one area just won't freaking heal, and it's right on the underwear line. Any tips?
How was it? And did it help? Pretty nervous about it.
I was diagnosed with a severe case of HS last week. I’m on oral doxycycline, topical clindamycin, and an acne wash. However I’m not and never have been a smoker or overweight. I’ve actually spent most of my adult years underweight from an eating disorder. I’m doing better now with the ED as I’ve just had a baby in September. I’m wondeting if the HS onset could be caused by hormonal birth control. I have the kyleena IUD
Does anyone else suffer with boils on their face?
I get flare ups often, they are really angry and cause my face to swell really bad.
I’ve had 3 in a row last few months.
Not been properly diagnosed but, was offered surgery a long time ago on my groin area. Refused as it was so invasive.
My mum also has this condition.
Is it worth going back to doctors? Referral time in the UK can take ages to see a dermatologist.
Help and advice would be much appreciated.
I have 2 cysts/boils that have been playing up for around a month now... they pop and then come back again... any advice would be greatful <3
Since I was diagnosed with HS I’ve noticed a smells that too me is a horrible smell under my armpit, yes I know maybe sweat could be involved but it’s not that kinda smell. I shower 3-5 times a day just so It’s clean and doesn’t smell. Can anyone recommend me something to help with this if you’ve had it.
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?
Are we high risk being on humira ??
