Humira did not work for me. It reduces the amount of flare ups but did not eliminate them. It also did not help current lessions to heal.

What Biologic Medications Have You Been Put On To Help With Your Case Of HS?

What Biologic Medications Have You Been Put On To Help With Your Case Of HS?

I have been on Humira, first time was for two years with no improvement, things actually got worse. I then restarted Humira after being off of it for almost a year, and immediately things got worse from what progress I'd had previously. I am seeing a new dermatologist who seems to be more knowledgeable about HS than any other doctors I have seen so far. His plan is for me to be on IV antibiotics (infusion antibiotic) for six weeks and then start Selara. Has anyone had luck with that?

A myHSteam Member said:

I have been on Remicade infusions for a couple months now with no improvement, but the doctor upped my dose and says sometimes it takes time.

My dermatologist recommended me to use Humira. I have Lupus, but it's remission. Does that affect me to fight infections and lower my immune? I am interested though.
