I see a lot of tips for reducing flare ups include stop smoking, and while I don't smoke cigarettes, I do smoke weed and vape. I do want to quit vaping, but I self-medicate for other conditions I have with weed, so I'm curious as to how smoking affects HS?
I’ve got an appointment to help me quit smoking coming up. Just wanted to hear others opinions on the matter. According to my dermatologist, when I questioned possible triggers, she snapped at me, “I told you this is an auto immune disorder, just stop smoking”
Now I know smoking probably doesn’t help, but I am convinced my triggers are hormonal and stress related. I do not feel heard by her, hopefully next appointment is with a different doctor
I quit smoking and I got more flare ups
My worst triggers are meat/dairy and stress mixed with heat/humidity. I have anxiety and depression which I have medical marijuana to help with, it's VASTLY reduced my outbreaks, even when I don't eat the way I'm supposed to.
No way.......I have sent some to California where it's legal, but also the UK where it isn't?? I don't think it's trafficking if it's free!
