I was diagnosed with HS around 8 years ago but have had it for years. I am lucky because a friend suffers from it and said it looks the same. I asked for an appointment with a dermatologist who confirmed it.
Mine started on my upper inner legs, spread to my stomach and I now have a new one on my upper arm. I am concerned that it is spreading and wonder if anyone has any advice please. They are so painful and debilitating. All the doctor does is give me antibiotics and a couple of times has referred me to have recurring ones cut out by local anaesthetic. The surgeon said that because it has spread all he could do is tackle them one at a time. He did mutter about plastic surgery but really don't want that.
Am looking for advice, support and empathy please.
Oh I am 60, female and live in the UK.
