Had hs for around 20 years, but only had a diagnosis last week!! mostly had the breakouts under my breasts, armpits and grion, now i have it on my lady parts. . . i had painful ones before but nothing like this pain!! . . . . currently got an ice pack between my legs. Spoke to dr who was absolutely useless,' come to the surgery he said', ' cant walk i said' 'go to a+e' he said. . . . absolutely useless. I had flucloxacillin last week which havent done a thing. This is hurting sooo much i dont no what to do, i can hardly walk. . . let alone get in the car an drive as the dr suggested, any one no of any over the counter pain killers or anything that will help, im so desperate , im a grown woman an cant stop crying. x x

Flucloxacillin has stopped working for me as well.. Tell your doctor that and they should give you something else..
I had a big lump in my groin last week.. I went to the chemist bought some dressings and tape.. Tape myself up!! This helped me as it's the rubbing on clothing that kills!! The John Wayne look is in at the moment for me Had hot bath with salt twice a day to make the lump calm down..
There is a cream you can get from your doctor, it's not the best but does help if you put on over night or as I did under my dressings before I taped myself up..
I'm currently under a dermatologist, but have found a tablet I work well with yet.. It's took me 10 years to actually get diagnosed and when you are it's still as confusing!!
Everyone is different, try all the things people say on here, some of them may work and some may not.. It's different for everyone..
We all know how you feel, and there comes a point when I was, this is not going to stop me from doing the things I want to do!! Hence strapping myself up!!!
Good luck and try everything!!!
Also when you see ur doctor ask about antibacterial scrub I.used this and it works wonders, for. me.using to many different products always made more lumps reappear so try not to use to many different gels and stuff on them.
You should be careful with the food you eat. Coz sometimes it causes the flareups.
I tried removing the nightshades and it works for me. I also stop eating preservative food as much possible cause most of them has some spices that belongs to the nightshade family. And also i stop eating sweet cause i think it cause flareups.
Also try putting some turmeric paste overnight it helped me reduce the pain and the swelling went away a little. Also try drinking turmeric tea everyday it might help you.
I hope this helps.
