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 should add that although I have quit cigarettes, I still smoke marijuana, and have my whole life. It can help with pain and stress, and I do not believe for a minute it would make your hs worse!
Hi Really odd question but I have been having HS type lumps/boils/absess coming up, but they are on my bottom, stomach and even back, could it be connected ?Thanks Lisa

Anyone receiving Remicade infusions? If so, does it heal sores that you already have or just stop new ones
In April 2022 I began wheezing. I know that HS is an auto-inflammatory disease. So I wonder if the inflammation can spread and could possibly be causing my wheeze. Probably not but I thought well, no one knows what's wrong with me so what better community to ask than you guys.

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 been doing research on a more permanent solution for my HS and found articles saying that the flare-ups stop after you go through menopause. I am going to ask my doctor about getting a hysterectomy for this reason as I am almost 40 and do not want children. I am wondering if anyone else has had success with this? I tried hormonal birth control and it has been a nightmare. Almost a constant period and repeat flare-ups that I did not have before trying the birth control.
