I keep reading on here about people here with HS bursting their boils/abcesses. Or pricking them etc,
I have never been able to do that with any of mine because of the pain and the fact they have no head. Literally the only thing that helps is antibiotics and incision afterwards.
All my abcesses have several big red hot bumps with lesser bumps all around and the rest of the area is red and incredibly painful. The redness and infection spreads all round the area too. How people can bear to prick or even touch them is beyond me as I can't move without pain.
The lesser ones begin to drain a bit but only a bit and pressing on them to drain them further is out of the question because of the pain.
Does everyone have a higher pain threshold than me? x
