Is or has anyone used the humira treatment and how was the results? Drs wanted me to try it a few years back but it was super expensive even though they had programs that would help the cost and I was worried about the warning about lung issues because my family has lung problems on both sides.

I take 800 ibuprofen but my dermatologist won't prescribe anything higher
My dermatologist prescribed me Tramadol and Prednisone to help me with pain right before my surgery in September. It took some of the edge off, but the pain was still there.

How do you deal with the pain
I use to be really good at ignoring the pain but it has gotten really bad lately. Every time I go to the Dermatologist she says there is not really anything she can do about the pain. I go on Friday and am going to ask her again but wanted to reach out here first. Also can I say it is nice to finally find a place to talk about this condition!!!
Aleve is my daytime pain killer and 600 mg of gabapentin at night. Codeine used to really help me and I swear it helped the boils pop! But good luck getting that nowadays! 😤
Personally I hate taking medication because of side effects, most of the time side effects are worse than what you're trying to get rid of
