what hobbies do you guys/ladies all have??? what takes your mind off your pain???
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?
I currently have a lump the size of a grape on the inner part of my lady parts plus two other spots/ poppable breakouts. I know that the large one will not pop it will just come back again. It had been throbbing now for 4 days . I have suffered all my adult life with these ruptures in this area, I just wondered if anyone else does? I take an anti biotic every day but it seems to have stopped working. I can have between 1-5 at once inside and out . They are absolutely killing !
I know this is probably a weird question... HS has always affected my relationships it’s always a personal problem. I have told two people about some of my issues that are rather unsightly in my underarm. One was totally okay, but the other not so much. I’m just wondering how do you guys deal in relationships? Does it ever get more comfortable or easier?
I haven’t become a mother yet and am wondering if this will help my HS, keep it the same or if to expect more flares!
I been suffering for at least 15 years and I feel like I always get the run around. So I went to the doctor the other day and I told him I wanted to have surgery. I kind of felt like he was trying to discourage me. He prescribed me some antibiotics that I got to take for two weeks. Then I go back for a follow up appointment. Any advice on what to tell him in-order to get what I want.
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
Today my heart was broke. I went to a 'new to me' dermatologist. I had my previous out of state records sent. My journal from my last two flare ups. And was ready to talk business. The doc selected 'Does HS studies/research'... I knew I just had to be in the right place
The 1st nurse was super nice listened, looked, took pics (i have has in my groin, so it is uncomfortable to show people). The PA, looked, heard me say the phrase HS, as I checked my dates on my journal she stood up and said Im… read more
I'm new to this site but have had HS as long as I can remember. I'm now 34. I haven't been to many docs but am having terrible flare ups again in my upper thigh/ groin area... there must be a doc that can help me with this! Does anyone know of any dermatologists in the upstate New York area, specifically near Rochester, NY... that are familiar with HS?
Also, if anyone can suggest cleansers, lotions, etc to deal with flare ups I'd be so grateful
- I've had this one large… read more
