I am in my last trimester of my pregnancy and my HS has NEVER flared this bad. I currently have 4 active flares in my groin/private area. This is my first pregnancy and it’s already so hard to find confidence but this is making everything worse! Any ideas for treatment are appreciated!!
If so what dosage were you on, how long were you int for? Did you see much improvement? Did it take long to see improvement? Thanks
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
I have a sibling and 2 nieces with it ,
I’ve been using oral antibiotics (erythromycin and now lymecycline) for 9 months now and it just isn’t helping. They’re less likely to get infected now, but the flares still arise and in new places. What medication would people recommend? And how would I persuade my doctor that what I’m on now just isn’t working?
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?
Anyone receiving Remicade infusions? If so, does it heal sores that you already have or just stop new ones
