I'm 21 and am certain I began getting HS when I was 16. It really started to become bad at 18.
I'm seeing a dermatologist next week (waited two months for this appointment) and only had it suggested to me that I had HS (guessed stage II but I fear I have stage III right now) from a dr about two months ago after being misdiagnosed for years.
I have wounds that won't close, or close for a few hours and open again, for about three months. It hurts, it doesn't smell nice and I can't take this anymore. After researching different results from antibiotics and surgeries I've come to the conclusion that these aren't particularly successful.
My question is, what is there that is successful or somewhat helpful? I'm getting incredibly depressed about this all and have since I discovered what it was.
I've read tea tree oil can help, do you just rub it on the wounds, even if they are open?
Also read that turmeric and diet can help.
How can I help the wounds to stay closed and heal properly?
Is there any more information on how to relieve these Boulder-like literal pain in the ass things?
Sorry if this is all over the place I'm just at my wits end and want to get this into control
