I have noticed that my hidradenitis occurs any where I have both pubic hair and chafing, arm pits and groin but not beard. This makes some sense given what I know about hidradenitis, an inflammatory response at the hair follicle.
I'm wondering if anyone knows of any kind of underwear that helps reduce this problem?
Specifically I am looking for men's underwear but maybe some women might find this useful as well.
If not then, since my sister is a fiber arts major maybe I'll see if she can… read more
I just wanted to share my experience with laser hair removal and see if anyone else had similar or very different experiences.
I have now gotten 5 treatments with an Nd:YAG laser on my arms a groin.
It has been extremely effective. My arm pits are in near complete remission. My groin is in near complete remission (I think this is because wasn't getting complete coverage during my earlier treatments.
Downsides : I no longer have hair to help cover up scarring (seems like a pretty obvious… read more
I developed a flair last week and at the same time got a terrible head cold and upset stomach that is still lingering. Anyone else get sick with other ailments at the same time as a flair? I'm wondering if my body is far more susceptible to other issues during a flair?
I have scars on my thighs and under my arms. What do you other ladies wear to the beach to cover your scars?
I haven't tried any special cleansers yet. I am going to look into purchasing something .

They all think they are clogged glands and things of that sort and when I tell them about my own research, they are almost immediately interested. I tell them that I have tried all of their conventional generic ointments they've prescribed. This site particularly has helped me more in leaps and bound than any doctors appointment.
Does anyone know of a good dermatologist in thePalm Springs, CA or Southern California area? I’m having a hard time finding a dermatologist that takes my HS seriously and knows enough about it to prescribe proper treatment. Any referrals would be greatly appreciated!
I have had this condition since my mid twenties and I'm now 42. Back in October, I ended up with a cyst so deep I didn't realize it existed until it was too late! My fever spiked to over 103 and I went by ambulance to the hospital and they had to do a cystectomy in my groin! The infection was so bad that it had spread to my bloodstream and I was septic.
