So I have had HDS since I was about 15-16 along with many other skin conditions (I really seem to get them all)
Anyway recently I for some reason have had a massive flare up. So much so that I have had to go to the hospital.
The trouble with it is there has been no real lifestyle changes that can contribute to this.
I have a 7 month old baby at home and work 56 hour weeks however that is then supplemented with 4 days off which really benefits family life.
But just these last two weeks I have seen around 4 abcssses start filling up and are literally about the size of a golf ball under my skin. With only the top of it perturbing above skin level. I am sick of them I genuinely cannot walk, I have dressings for them and inadine patches to put over the top. I am on antibiotics and pretty strong pain killers but even with them the pain is excruciating.
Now due to all this limping and sitting/lying at funny angles I have an absolutely agonising spasm in my back which really isn't helping.
What I am really asking is, has anyone else had a flare up so sudden and so bad ?
Equally in your opinion how far advances would you think my condition is in terms of stages because the doctor couldn't really say and said I would have to be referred to a dermo but I can actually feel tunnel like things underneath my skin with loads of off shoots and they 100% connect these 4 accesses on my waist band.
Under my arms not so much they tend not to hurt.
Any advice on relief, medications or really anything at this stage would be very much appreciated.
