How Does Smoking Affect HS?
A myHSteam Member asked a question 💭

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?

A myHSteam Member

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!

Remicade
A myHSteam Member asked a question 💭

Anyone receiving Remicade infusions? If so, does it heal sores that you already have or just stop new ones

A myHSteam Member

I am on remicade and recently had large deroofing under both my arms. The remicade has helped keep new ones from developing, but is not great at helping heal old ones. The surgeon who did my deroofing… read more

I Was Wondering If Anyone By Chance Has A Wheeze? I Have Had HS For Years. DRs Have No Idea Why And We Have Done Every Test.
A myHSteam Member asked a question 💭

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 don't have asthma, it's not GERD, it's not heart related and nothing in the lung x-rays shows up.

*Pic so I don't get lost

Praying for you that it is nothing serious and was just caused by irritation from the GERD.

Anybody Else Not Overweight?
A myHSteam Member asked a question 💭

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

Have Any Women Fou D Relief From HS After Going Through Menopause?
A myHSteam Member asked a question 💭

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.

A myHSteam Member

I recently visited my derm whom I love! He explained to me that a hysterectomy wouldn’t help because they leave your ovaries. The ovaries are responsible for the hormone production and distribution of… read more
